Art and Emotions

Artist Statement

My art was born out the quest for perfection, and in every work that I create, I make a realistic drawing of people, showing the emotions they wish we could see through their eyes, with pencils. This is with the aim of speaking for people who can’t speak for themselves. A lot of people are trapped or drained emotionally and capturing those emotions with a humble instrument (pencil) is my own way of setting them free.
