My figurative drawings are realistic depiction of human anatomy. They are bold, exubrantly dark, measured, elaborate and detailed.

I want to tell their stories and express their individualities. Also, I am investigating  physical appearences of the body and how it contributes greatly to the sense of who we think we are, its strength or weakness, its perceived beauty or ugliness relative to others. For many people, their sense of self-worth is intimately bound up with their physical strengths, good looks, fitness, and external appearance, especially in the West. What happens when all those attributes begin to fade and disappear? Are we equating our body with "Who We Are"?
