About Me

Haven't been painting in a while.  I am going to be working with very select models for my own concepts for a while, let me know if you want to be part of that select group. If you have a great idea that fits my style, tell me about it.

Here are a couple of my past exhibitions

Two works at the FUSION in the Visual Arts Exhibition, at Concordia University, Ann Arbor, MI.


I am planning other exhibitions of abstractions in the future.

While I design the paintings, they are really collaborations.  I let the model decide on what part of their bodies they want to be painted, G rated, nude or anything in between.  I ask models if they have a color preference.  I ask for feedback from the models throughout the painting process.  I do not do a painting that could be on any model, each painting is inspired by the particulars of each model's body.

Themed body paintings, animals, reproductions of scenes or other art does not fit the needs of my portfolio.  I cannot do that style of painting as a trade, be glad to discuss other options, one-for-one trade, and of course pay.

I generally ignore drive-by Friend Requests.

MY WORK-For near future, and probably much longer, this is the way I will be photographing my body paintings.

Model:Sha-Lynn #1408998

I will photograph the full painting, and the face (if that is what you want for your portfolio).  I will also be doing close-ups to get images for my Abstraction album.

I have taught photography, drawing, sculpture and art history at several colleges on Long Island and in NYC.

I usually do paintings Mon-Thurs mornings and early afternoons. 

*-tentative-I may be able to schedule a painting on one of these days, I just can't schedule more than one week in advance.
Important I am located on Long Island, 30 minutes from Penn Station on the Long Island Railroad.  I will meet you up at the train station.  Please be sure you are willing to travel to Long Island.
Shoots must be confirmed 24 hours in advance or I will consider them canceled.

These models have collaborated with me on the abstractions currently in my port.  I encourage you to check out their ports.

I will work with models from non-nude, implied nude, topless, to full nude.
Half of my portfolio is G rated, I will work within any model's limits.  One restriction, I will not paint a model with clothing or pasties for trade.

Prefer models with minimal tattoos and piercings, with no plastic surgery or augmentation.

I don't have a set design I plan in advance, I start off with a basic idea and let the model's body suggest where the painting should go. 

~I use CraftyDab brand Face Paint Crayons and Kryolan Professional body paints.  Both products are FDA approved for application on the skin.

I am doing this TFCD and I will give you copy of the images I shoot for your portfolio at the end of the shoot.  Even better bring a flashdrive or laptop and I will download the images immediately.  The painting and shooting would takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the design.

ESCORTED MODELS I am fine with escorts, as long as they do not get involved in the shoot, and please only one person.  Escort arrangements must be discussed at least 24 hours before the shoot.

Please leave all piercings and jewelry at home.

References are important for both the model and the photographer.  Some of the women I have worked with have offered to take phone calls from models who are interested in discussing this project.  Let me know and I will give you their phone numbers.

Credit Notes

There is a reason everyone in my Top 12 is there. 
Some are models who will be willing to offer quick references, others, because of the respect I have for them, some fit into both categories.
