My imagination and creativity as an artist, designer, photographer, or producer is not likely to limit me in any way, shape or form. To push the boundaries to be different, to be daring, to be innovative, yet believable, tasteful, mindful, and respectful are the goals of my body of art. I see my art not as an entity in and of itself, but as a collaboration amongst all involved and aim to stimulate as many of the senses as possible in an individual design and production. Therefore, detail and organization, yet the ability to be flexible and create beauty and wonder without such are both very important. Because when dealing with people, other living things and nature, there is no constant. And their changing beauty, moods and light should be captured and held up for all to appreciate either infinitely or for just fleeting moments in time.
My education and background are quite surprising to most, having received an undergraduate degree and Juris Doctorate (attorney) from Louisiana State University. Yes, I am a practicing nerdy accomplished attorney, whose skills in other areas have enhanced every aspect of my life. I love the water and the outdoors as well, and well...won't go into my credentials in that respect unless asked. Will gladly share all. My art and interest in photography is an outflow of many years of self-study, some college study on the subject of art and fashion, and creative projects throughout my life.

My skills include bodypainting with makeup, including UV, airbrush art on people and other backgrounds and materials, brush and sponge art on people and other backgrounds and materials, creative photography, set design and production, wardrobe consulting, special effects design and production, and costume design and production. I do believe in the beauty of digital graphics and the wonders of photoshop. But, I have not felt compelled to use it's high end graphics or manipulation capabilities with my art. It is and has not been necessary but for limited final product editing. I am open to it's use for particular projects and goals in mind, but most work in my portfolio does not reflect those high end utilities.
I am experienced in arenas involving high stress as well as those allowing for a slower pace. Almost any forum or event is within my range and I am more than willing to travel. I will consider selective TFCDs. I am currently looking for male and female models for full fine art bodypainting with strong physiques who would like to expand their portfolios utilizing my art and compensation will be discussed privately.
