Whilst an element of realism is important, I try to move beyond artistic convention and avoid an image that is too predictable.
Realism is not enough - what you take away and what you add to what you see are what transform a picture into art. I believe that
the viewer wants to see a degree of draughtsmanship from an artist but they deserve more than this. I aspire to make my pictures touch
people personally and to be considered simple works of beauty.
