About Realism

Some projects call for a high level of realism, yet, despite how accurate or detailed an image is, it may still lack something in the viewer’s mind, something hard to define.

Appeal? Sparkle? Romance? Whatever it is, that’s what makes a viewer understand, want to know more, buy, or maybe begin to salivate.

My work is digital, using all the expanded possibilities contained in that medium, yet it evolved from painting with a brush on paper. I want to keep that human touch–that’s what makes a motivating image.
