Everything in nature is perfect, even though it may not appear so to the human eye. What I want to do with my drawings is transform a flat surface, using color and texture, so that my subject appears three dimensional. I consider it a blessing when the drawing reveals the subject’s natural loveliness, and sensual opulence.
