My background is painting and illustration. Having strong compositional skills has served me well in the camera realm, and I see all of it as part of the same thing – photography’s just instantaneous, where drawing is a lot of work. I stepped away from drawing for some time when I moved to NYC, simply because I was moving so much and didn’t always have the physical or mental space to devote to it. It’s been nice to get back into this mindset.

I use graphite, watercolour, pen and ink, and traditional painting media.
