I am an artist near Tampa, Florida, specializing in portraiture and figurative work, in oil paint and in pencil. In most of my work the subject is clothed; any nude poses are strictly 'artistic.' I occasionally use MM to hire models and I'm grateful to those with whom I have collaborated, most of whom are very professional and a joy to work with (those are the ones listed under 'credits' below. When requested by the model I'm happy to agree in writing to keep the photos taken as source material for the artwork confidential. If the model would like it I am usually also willing to trade the model's time for a painting or drawing that the model can keep.
I try to feature my work using MM members here in my portfolio, but with the limited number of photos permitted I can't include all of them. I have inserted below links to the artwork not included, which lead you to my main art website (see link at the top of this profile page).

Kara Diakoulas MM 897921 - to see a painting of Kara go to my main art site (link above) and look under "figurative" paintings. She's sitting on a piano a la Michelle Pfeiffer in The Fabulous Baker Boys and wearing a blue dress.
