It absolutely drives me nuts when people read your message and don't respond. If you have the time to read the message, you have the time to send a quick response back! The point of this site is to make contact with and work with others, not just collect friends. If someone sends you a legitimate request to work with you, have the decency to at least respond, even if it is a polite "No Thank You!"
Currently, I run a weekly open figure drawing session on Tuesday nights from 9pm-11pm at the Phoenix Cafe in Hazel Park, MI. I am booking models for these sessions, so if you are interested, please message me. We are looking for both nude and bikini for the sessions, which pays $30 for the two hours. If you would like to know more about it, please visit our group page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/522614544477853/

First and foremost, if you would like to see a larger collection of my artwork that is more than just figure drawings, please go to my facebook page at www.facebook.com/media/myuploads/.
And by all means, please let me know what you think! Send me a friend request and a message. I will always reply.
I received my BFA in sculpture and my BAA in design from Central Michigan University. I believe I studied under some great artists, both in High School and College, and came away from the experience with a pretty well rounded education.
In the years since, I have experimented with many different styles, mediums and subjects, but have always come back to the figure. Primarily everything I create is figurative or has elements of the figure in it.
The past several years have been exciting for me because I have developed quite a passion for stained glass mosaics. However, I have most recently been focusing more on my drawing, enjoying the more immediate satisfaction of a completed work.
Like most artists that I have met, it has been hard for me to find models to work with. Most of my friends have done so already for me, and are no longer interested. I rarely have the time or the money to pick up everything and sit in on open sessions at local galleries/studios.
While I have known of MM for years, I always thought it was strictly for professional photographers. I was recently informed that it is open to painters as well. So, here I am. My goal is to find some models that are comfortable with and enjoy posing (few people have that kind of patience) and will help keep me inspired. In turn, I hope that the work I create out of this will be appreciated and enjoyed by the models.
I go through phases where I am extremely inspired and motivated. These are the times I need to focus on getting done as much work as possible. I look forward to finding some models that will be available when I am. Currently, I have works up at one local gallery, and am working on new pieces to submit to other shows as well.
Somewhere down the road, I would love to be able to support myself with my art. Until then I do it because I love to and wouldn't know what to do if i didn't!
