About Dominique

I have always had a passion for art and have been drawing since a young age. Throughout my formative years and into my early 20's I concentrated mostly on pencil portraits of celebrities and models from magazines. 


After a long period of absence from art, I re-entered the art world.  I've since discovered my enjoyment for incorporating surrealism, abstract organic shapes and fantasy into my artwork. I work mostly in black and white with pens and pencils.  I love to create images with lots of movement and flow.  My subjects often include angelic creatures, earthen elements and celestial objects.  My creation is driven by my subconscious thoughts to express emotional moments or fights against unseen forces that viewers can relate to or identify with, not dictating what others should feel but only that they can and they're not alone.  Most of my creations start out as brief sketches of an idea.  The images evolve as each pen or pencil mark is laid.  I never know what will happen in the areas not originally planned in the concept sketches.  I let the emerging image guide the next mark.   


Welcome to my site, where I hope to take you beyond the picture and into the limitless world of imagination.

A little bit more about me:  I love nature and natural elements, from trees to flowers to birds to waves and clouds.  I am fascinated by movement in nature such as a wave crashing against rocks or storms, which embody all the natural elements that I like to envision in my creations, from stormy dark clouds to raging waves to blowing wind.  This is mostly where I get my inspiration from.  As such I've become an amateur photographer and videographer, capturing and presenting these beautiful inspiration on my Instagram page.
