About MeMy Artist Statement and Prices
What is my goal: To be a professional artist making art that I enjoy.
What kind of art do I make: I paint pin-up of women.
What is my dream accomplishment: Artbook published by SQP.
How long have I been painting: I have been painting pin-up off and on since 2003. In 2010 I did my first painting from my own photograph. It is called "Couple's Therapy". It depicts a man and a women on their knees with hooks in their backs connected to ropes being pulled up by another women standing above them. In the same painting there are 2 posters depicting a different shot of each of the couple. It is the only painting I have ever done of a man and I intend for it to be my only. I took the photo at a Dr Sketchy's event. I have painted the female in the couple many times since including a photo by GG Hotshots used with permission. In it Kelley Healey is in a short black dress and a man's tie. I call it "Kelley Under Bridge" and it did get me some attention back in 2011 when I finished it. But I was not ready to take advantage of the opportunity and interest dropped off from the following pictures I did from photo's I took from Dr Sketchy events. But now I have slightly changed styles putting a contour line around the subjects and using more color. Now I am ready to move on to my next phase and towards my goal.
