Today, the world of architectural illustration is littered with digital, computer generated work. My goal as an artist is to show the viewer the beauty and detail of architectural subjects in the traditional medium of pencil. Excellence in realism is what I strive for, as my drawings intend to emphasize all of the elements and surroundings of a building that make each one so unique. I study how light interacts with each structure and through value contrast and varying pencil strokes, create textures that lift the subject off of the paper and bring the architecture to life. Achieving this with just a pencil challenges my skill, tests my humility, and ultimately rewards and inspires me to create more.

My most difficult and time consuming drawing to date, "Freedom Rising" depicts One World Trade Center, often referred to as the Freedom Tower, rising over lower Manhattan. It is a symbol of the resiliency of New York City and America. Prints can be ordered here:

Barnegat lighthouse, often referred to as "Old Barney," was built in 1857 and stands 172 feet tall at the northern tip of Long Beach Island, New Jersey. This is the second time I've drawn this lighthouse in the last year or so, as I was hoping to see some improvement. Overall, there are some things I like, and other things I don't like about this drawing. Prints are available here:…;

Thanks for looking.
