    Artist Statement

    My "Eve-O-Lution" Series began around four years ago as an endeavor to paint the female subject in various styles from classical oils to stylized Art Nouveau. I named it Eve-O-Lution because it was as much an exploration of artistic expression as it was an attempt at capturing beauty.


    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!

    Added some brand new paintings to my page this week. Really having fun with the texture and layers as well as the simplicity of the wash pieces! As one of my students commented, "They're so organic!" Back at the easel this weekend painting a big portrait profile of a model from Ireland who is of genuine Gypsy decent. Authentic jewelry and, of course, jet black hair! Stay tuned. Should be a cool one! Pat

    Hi Pat- "Torsion" just arrived and is everything I hoped it would be. I love the defining texture and the use of coloring both on the body and background that adds a dreamy feeling to the entire work. I shall follow your work and wish you the best of success. Cheers, Frank

    Hi Pat- thanks for the quick answer on a holiday weekend- and I responded quickly with my order all though it was hard to decide which of your works I liked best- Your work is outstanding and I shall certainly follow it. Cheers, Frank

    Hi Frank, thanks so much for the compliment! Yes my pieces come ready to hang with a wire so nothing else needs to be done to put them up on a wall. Please let me know if I can be of any further help! I deeply appreciate the input and would love to be able to add to your art collection! Pat Soper

    Hi Patrick- Just to clarify-when you say it comes ready to hang- does that mean it has a wire or some other device? I really like your work and would want to just hang it right up without any further work. Thanks, Frank
