I'm just a self taught patient hobbyist person.

I've always been interested in drawing, sculpting and painting since I was 2 years old.

I started drawing and developing my own style of ballpoint pen drawing back when I was in school, in simple classroom sketches in the back of my exercise books. I never imagined there were so many brilliantly masterful ballpoint artists out there.

Ballpoint pen is not my only medium, it's just the one I'm currently trying to master. At this point in my life I'm fairly proficient with chalk, pencil, color pencil, pastels, oils and acrylics. Maybe one day I'll create an account just to share those.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.

It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further.

Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.
A ballpoint pen is just another art tool. A tool is only as powerful as the Artist who uses it.

It's not about what you use, it's about how you use it.

Thanks for answering my question. The FAQ is a great idea. I think alot of artists who don't have time just ignore alot of the inquiries they get. And that's not good.
So now I know. When I first saw your work I said "wow". Now that I know a little more about the process all I can say is "wow, wow, wow...and wow!!!". I know my way around a pen pretty well and I can't remember
the last time I was so baffled as far as technique when looking at someones work. I STILL don't know how you do it.
If you ever get tired of law I would imagine you could do pretty well for yourself with your amazing work. maybe not lawyer money...but still.

You're drawings are just incredible, and I can't get over how you do it with ball point pens. Amazing talent you have.

I'm confused. Where do you get ball point pens in all those colors?
