My interest in architectural illustration began in high school when I decided to study architecture. Over the years, my expertise in architecture has developed due to my five years of architectural studies when I practiced perspective drawing and my architectural jobs when I prepared documentation involving hand drawn elevations and three dimensional drawings. As an illustrator who specializes in architecture I nurture this focus by practicing every day, staying interested in architectural topics, travelling, doing city breaks, admiring historical and modern architecture. What I love most about architecture is its ability to influence people’s lives and survive generations. To create a successful architecture illustration I believe it’s important to master perspective drawing and to be able to show the atmosphere around the building and to present a story, to make it look alive. For me, the two most important qualities of a successful architecture illustration are proportions and light. To maintain my skill set I sketch architecture every day. Apart from practice, for me it is a form of relaxation.
