All of my work is 100% colored pencil on either sanded paper or Pastelbord. The sanded paper I use (Artspectrum Colourfix and Canon Mi-teintes Touch) is watercolor paper that has been screen printed with an acrylic tinted primer intermixed with pumice. The result is a toned, textured paper intended for use with pastels. For colored pencils, though, it produces a distinct speckled effect, and allows me to incorporate the tone of the paper into the drawing.

Typically I work on full sheets of paper, which are 18″ x 27″. A sheet this size takes about 1 month to complete, with multiple layers of color slowly built up week after week. I find that people often cannot identify the finished product as a colored pencil drawing – it has a unique look with intense, opaque colors.

My works have appeared in The Colored Pencil Society of America's (CPSA) Explore This!, the CPSA Annual International Exhibitions, North Light Books Strokes of Genius series, Colored Pencil Magazine, Drawing Magazine and the Artist’s Magazine, and I am a Signature member of the Colored Pencil Society of America.
