I am currently a student at LARA (London Atelier of Representational Art). My main interest is to learn the techniques of the old masters in figurative art and use it to create works for a contemporary audience. I use a variety of mediums to express myself and experiment including oil, pastel, charcoal and pencil.
My background is in Artificial Intelligence and the corporate training industry. Though I have carried out a series of digital arts projects over the years, it wasn’t until I attended a life drawing session that I discovered a whole new world. I realised that drawing a face is extremely challenging. The more time I spent on figurative art, the more I appreciated the complexity. I have now a lot more respect for what the old masters have managed to achieve. The challenge of capturing a figure along with good design and composition has made the task extremely attractive to me. Hence, I eventually decided to devote myself entirely to the task and become a full-time artist.
While studying at LARA, I am focusing on all aspects of creating a quality work including craftsmanship, expression of light and form, realism, design and aesthetics of beauty.
