With a background in illustration and design I view objects through shapes within the subject.
While continuing to reach a “simplistic” conclusion from studies, the detail in drawings evolve with intricate shadings and overlaid dots, both in color and black and white.

Exercising the need to elaborate ideas the use of metallic paint is applied as a new exploration. Stippling is a constant thread in all works to date.
