I choose a medium to suit the subject, unlike most artists who tend to focus on one subject/theme and one medium indefinitely. I can't imagine doing that. The translucency of egg tempera, the bold strokes of graphite putty, carefree acrylic, colored pencil, charcoal, even collage - all challenge and delight me.
I see art everywhere, in everything.
Please contact me if there is a piece you would like to purchase. I would be glad to discuss the artwork and shipping.
I have prints made of some of my pieces.
Please contact me for more information and pricing.
Please contact me if you are interested in a commissioned piece.
While I can work from sittings, I typically work from photographs. The more detail is in the photo, the more detail I can put into the artwork. I have done portraits in silverpoint, graphite, watercolor, egg tempera, acrylic/collage, and oil. Please contact me and we can discuss your portrait needs.
Please let me know if any of my artist techniques would be suitable for your illustration needs.
