Artist Statement:

Being recently retired, I am free to pursue my art full time and at my own pace. I am fascinated with observing people in different settings. Through my art, I try to capture the everyday life of ordinary people, including their emotions and relationships. I liken myself to a camera, capturing each scene with subjects paused at that moment in time. With pen and sketchpad in hand, I try to capture the action, gestures and characters as candidly as possible.

I hope my art allows viewers to take a step back and appreciate the beauty of life’s simple moments which often go unnoticed.
