About Me

My photo
A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

Claude & Leo



Well I am happy to say they are done,
Claude and Leo
 is in the hands of my clients and they are very happy with how they turned out.
“We love the illustrations! They really capture the spirit of the boys. Thank you so much. “
Doing pet portrait is not easy from the handful of pictures you are sent you have to find something among the snapshots and say to yourself that is the expression I want to capture. And hope the client agrees with your choice.
I have posted different stages of the project it took me about two weeks to complete but hour wise would only add up to a week if I worked on them in the course of an eight hour day.
