Kids' art is very delicate. With its innocent charm, it offers a glimpse of the hidden harmony that unites us all. It stimulates the imaginations of young minds and inspires them with the curiosity and courage to go out, explore new worlds and find new friends.
Until recently I had restricted myself to
“grown-up” art. But now I've also begun creating children’s illustrations. I draw kids characters as well as anthropomorphic animals, from piggies and bunnies to rodents and eagles. My illustration technique is a softer, cuter version of my fine art painting technique. I work economically, simplifying and stylizing my shapes and seeking to achieve cheerful color harmonies. My contours are very playful and are done in pencil or brush pen. I keep them to a minimum, trying to make each one count. I vary their thickness, expressivity as well as the pressure I apply them with. It is not the heaviest lines that carry the most weight but those that are the most suggestive of volume, movement and personality. I like to dramatize my outlines with graceful, melodic splashes of watercolor or acrylic, allowing my brush to dance to the tune in my head. I always look for ways to counterpoint each stroke with value and color contrasts. My ideal composition is one which conveys beauty and emotion.
