I am a professional Artist. Im interested in exhibiting universal and timeless themes.
I dont 'shoot', I paint for art exhibition/private collection. However, in this day and age, i use photography in the process quite a bit, especially when painting 'sittings' are irrelevant. Masters like maxwell Parish even used glass photography to paint from in the 1910s and 20s. So please keep all this in mind when quoting me fees and charges. My paintings can take 1 or 2 or 5 days and a lot of commitment.
I may consider a test run if i like the look of ya, you can communicate promptly, and demonstrate commitment . Commitment is not a restriction of freedom, it is a setting aside a space and time for something your keen on.
Most of my business is landscape,
If you want to test out with me, you must be open to part clothed, or art nude.
IS NUDITY IN ART A VIRTUE OR VISE? READ THIS IF YOU HAVE ISSUES http://www.artrenewal.org/pages/archive … cleid=2002
I make 'elegance' and 'the beauty' only with the right muse.
IF you havn't worked with an artist before - or romanticize the artist, read this;

http://kristianmumford.com is a good way to check me out, apart from actually doing me justice and seeing my work in the galleries or my collections.
No dramas, no worries, no tennis. Also If you express an interest or make arrangements, but think its ok to bale on me - its not ok! Go see my art - browse or get on my newsletter, but dont waste my personal time.
I personally CARE about making the best painting I can produce. Fine Art isnt pop, it isnt a sport, and neither is it really about getting a designer or adviser to tell you what to invest in - its natural and if you love it, you see its beauty everywhere, responsible for the happiness of a community and individuals.
my lifestyle, type of work has me out in the open country 1.3 hrs south of adelaide. I do go to the cities (adelaide or melbourne /lived in both) occasionally, and stay overnight, which is how ive been organising any artwork there, otherwise its at my beautiful studio on the Fleurieu.
PORTFOLIO / GALLERY
I don’t have a great deal of sheer/topless/nude glamour collection work because it would scare the hell out of my viewers and for a painting is kinda pointless
