I like to work from life and capture personality and character through pencils, ink, watercolor and other drawing mediums. I have an easel that can be set up and ready in a few minutes. Live drawings can range in time posed from a few minutes to an hour or more. I can work at almost any location. I'm about an hour east of San Francisco and south of Sacramento. I can draw from a photo, but prefer to work from ones I've taken.

****If it is your desire to have an original (or multiple originals) I can be hired to draw at an hourly rate. Commissions from photos are also an option. Email [email protected] for more info.****

My "day" job is caricature at events all over the SF Bay Area, northern and central California. (not in a retail situation, but as a hosted paid performer/entertainer)

My art/drawing background:
1985 BFA Drawing (emphasis on the figure) CCAC (now CCA - Oakland)
1985 first event caricature
1994 - 2000 Theme Park Caricature (Marine World, Vallejo and Great America, Santa Clara)
1994 - Present Caricature fulltime
2001 - got lost on the internet and stumbled across some artists drawing the art of the female form ... one thing led to another and that's how I ended up here.
