I was introduced to Art by my father and his family. Although they are extremely gifted with paint; I prefer graphite & color pencil as I render realistic drawings. This obsession had me searching for the perfect picture to replicate—which in return—gave me a very critical view of photography as it deeply enriched my appreciation for great photographic work. It is with great humility that I share my passion in the hopes that others will visually appreciate the beauty I have managed to preserve. Otherwise; it fades away as a vague memory, and ultimately dies with the beholder.
