I am, mostly a human/figurative painter/drafstmann/artist/ in San Francisco, CA.
My focus is on the human form - people /portraits - everything about people - with the hope of capturing something beautiful about each individual - that is part of what I hope to accomplish as a painter/drawing artist. My approach to the work is as a classical realist and while I am not finished learning ( I will hopefully never be!) I am a published, award-winning artist and have delivered several commissions for clients over the past two years.
Working with models: I have worked with some amazing models from MM and locally - I want an easy environment where you are part of the process - not a prop. It is a pretty laid-back atmosphere.. and you can talk ( some) while I work.. I work mostly from the model, in real time but also do shoots and use photo-references for my works. Photo references are only used as the basis for drawings and paintings. They will not be published unless you would like to publish some of my photos or request that I do. I hope that makes sense and if you've read this far, I owe you a dollar!
