About Me

The work in my Model Mayhem portfolio to the left is only a small snippet of what I do. It represents mainly my figurative work done from a live model, which is most applicable to this site. My illustrations, commercial, and gallery work can be seen in the website link above.

I am an artist. I freelance for print seen in the credits below. I'm also the Studio Lead of the Art Department studios, here in beautiful downtown Austin. This allows me to run a figure class, in an academic setting, three times a week for three hour sessions. Of course, a figure class needs figure models, hence my profile.

If you are a model, and interested in posing for my class of artists feel free to message me. We mainly work with nudes, but sometimes will schedule a purely portrait pose, or a costumed pose. I'm happy to work with models that have not posed for artists before. The nature of the session allows me to direct the poses and meet with the model beforehand to discuss what I'll be looking for.

All models are compensated for their time.

I suggest reviewing this helpful literature "The Art Model's Handbook: The Naked Truth about Posing for Art Classes and Fine Artists": … 1442169699

**The figure model honors the artist by posing for him/her, and the artist honors the model by genuinely attempting to capture the spirit of the pose. I am very serious about my classes, and nothing is worse than scheduling in a model who haphazardly decides not to show up at the last minute. This is disrespectful to me and my class of students eager to learn. It also shows poor character. I love Model Mayhem, because it has allowed me to work with incredible people who I value dearly. But there is a stunning amount of models who completely disregard their commitments. Don't do this. I am a professional, and I expect professionalism and courtesy from the models I work with.**
