Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
My artwork is realistic, but I want to achieve more than photographic realism. My specialty lies within the field of portraits (people and animals), but I also like to draw other scenes and themes. Greece is a recurring topic, with its beautiful architecture and colours.
I have been told that the difference between my drawings and photographs is that my drawings have a ‘soul’. I consider that a great compliment. Personally, I think that I make realistic drawings because I want to understand better what my subjects are made of, inside and out. I want to know what is ‘underneath’, but also to almost feel the texture of the surface I draw.
There are always pictures in my head waiting to come to life. I am truly never without inspiration.
The only thing I lack sometimes is enough time to create all these images!
