Why did you pick this picture?
I picked this artwork because it was a request from a friend who wanted me to paint the lighthouse where their grandparents lived. This piece had more of a story and than any other work I have made recently.
Where did the idea come from?
The idea came from a friend but the image that he sent me of the light house was poor. Doing some research on the Internet of lighthouses and seeing how images were composed helped me create this image.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I’m a Chicago native, still studying in college as a graphic design major. I have been drawing since I was a little kid, it’s something that I have always had a passion for. It wasn’t till high school where my skills really began to develop. I don’t like to stick to one medium, being able to challenge myself and find new techniques helps me grow and understand where I’m going with my work. I find that there is no limitation to art as long as you don’t limit yourself.
What more can you tell us about your art?
What you will see more do more are illustrations. I enjoy drawing with pencils, color pencils and sharpies. I try getting every little detail in the image right. To me my artworks are never done and can always be improved on.
