Here you can view my realistic charcoal and graphite pencil portraits, as well as many other things that I sometimes find myself interested in.
I first picked up a pencil in January 2012 and I haven’t put it down ever since. I draw from pictures, prefer visually compelling images with high light-to-shadow contrast and I am absolutely in love with the beauty, complexity and uniqueness of every human face.
Since I am new to drawing, my technique, if it can even be called as such, can only be described as ‘doing what feels right’. I draw mostly for pleasure but I also undertake commissions.
If you find yourself wanting to commission a custom work, please visit the About and Pricing pages for more information. A unique, hand-drawn portrait of a loved one will make an unexpected and highly treasured gift for any occasion!

India Ink (Faber Castell) on a narrow canvas panel. 14″ x 18″
I’ve never done ink on canvas before, but I thought it somehow fitting to the image I was trying to create.
One thing I love and hate about ink is how cheat-proof it is. I don’t get to erase it or to tweak it, not like with a faulty stroke of a pencil. With ink, my first pen stroke is my last. A bit like live music – once heard, the faulty note cannot be taken back, but the piece is all the more beautiful for its presence.
