Yellow and Black Photography Quote (1).p

“I strive to create a moment in time…”

My style of art is hyperrealism, a snapshot in time done with pencil. This was a powerful concept for me at an early stage of my personal art journey.

"Pandemic" is a piece I started during the pandemic, I wanted to capture the emotions we have all experienced in one single moment. A piece that took 36 hours to create, I want you to see yourself in this. We have all gone through such hard times and often we just want to scream at the top of our lungs. We have lost jobs, lost family, lost friends and I want everyone to know that they are not alone.

Gratitude

Graphite

$1,100

I needed to capture gratitude, that moment you realize that you are where you are meant to be. To be grateful for everything that you have and everyone that you have and you know that God has a plan for you.

I strive to create a moment in time, intending to capture the power of an emotion in a single frame with the hope that that emotion will be felt by the viewer.

I am a self-taught artist from South Africa, living in Canada.

I want the viewer to relate and feel a shared experience with the piece, and with that feel that they are not alone and hopefully comforted or validated by this.

I am a self-taught artist from South Africa, living in Canada. Over the years I have been experimenting and developing my love of creating art with a pencil, always keeping it as traditional as possible.

"Peace", that moment when you find it is powerful and a stage I hope we all find, a place where you realize that you don't have control of everything around you and to just be happy, be at peace. I was inspired to draw this after a conversation with a friend after having gone through very tough times, came out stronger.

If the viewer is conflicted or feels uneasy by viewing my imagery, it may just be because it is awakening and quietly relating on some level.

A feeling of pure frustration, to scream at the top of your lungs and now be heard, A cry for help that falls on deaf ears.. many of us have experienced this and I hope to let others know, they are not alone. This also speaks of todays world where we no longer see everyone faces, we just see eyes behind masks, I. look forward to seeing the. smiles on peoples faces again!

Keeping true to the original masters like Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarotti for example, I learned the nuances behind the human figure, and I brought that into my own work.
