I am primarily a painter, fine artist... you can check out my artwork at my website:
My work features fantasy themes and I enjoy creating portraits of women concentrating on the emotional intensity that can be captured in facial expression, color and atmosphere.
Recently, I have branched out into the medium of Body Painting.
I am specifically looking for models with a classic, timeless look... I am compelled by the Art Nouveau style and my artwork incorporates nature and organic forms as compositional elements with an intent to portray the idea of a spiritual force inhabiting the physical world.
To give an idea of the style that I celebrate in my work, here is a list of historical artists who have inspired me:
Maxfield Parrish, Howard Pyle, Alfonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Frank Cowper, Edward Burne-Jones, Jean-Leon Gerome, Jean Delville, Edward Robert Hughes, John Atkinson Grimshaw, Walter Crane, Evelyn de Morgan, Susan Seddon Boulet, William Bouguereau, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, JW Waterhouse, Frederick Leighton, John Everett Millais, Sidney Meteyard, Herbert James Draper, Frank Dicksee, Paul DeLarouche, Arthur Hacker, Lucien Levy-Dhurmer, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, John White Alexander, Franz von Stuck, Carlos Schwabe, Kay Nielsen, Erte, Aubrey Beardsley, Harry Clarke, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Antoine-Auguste-Ernest Hebert, Albert Moore, Edmund Dulac
Unfortunately, I cannot pay models, but you will be glorified nonetheless.
