About The Artist
In my many years as a book illustrator and portrait artist, I developed a deep love for painting the human subject. In this series, which I now consider to be my life's work, I use all the techniques, mediums and styles that I have
acquired in thirty years to try to capture the evanescent quality of the female face and form. It's a struggle I never tire of!
I have learned to hone my photography skills along the way as I start with live models in my studio trying to maximize the effectiveness of lighting to sculpt their forms to create the most beautiful and dramatic results.
I have been influenced by many figurative artists: Klimt with his use of geometric shapes and gold; Mucha, known for his beautiful Art Nouveau pieces; the Pre-Raphaelites such as Waterhouse; and even fantasy illustrators like Frank Frazette. I thank you for viewing my work and following along on my Eve-O-Lutionary journey!
