Here are the most common questions people ask me regarding my artwork. I've tried to include the most common questions, but please feel free to email me if your question isn't on the list.
Do you sell your work?
Occasionally, but not frequently. I usually sell only prints because frankly the originals are worth more to me than people would be willing to pay me for them. You never know though, so if you see something you like that isn’t listed as being for sale, send me an email and make me an offer.
What medium do you use?
A majority of my professional work is done in watercolor, but I like working in just about any medium. I was lucky enough to go to a great school where I received great training, so I feel comfortable working with any materials.
Who are your biggest influences?
That's a really difficult question because while I've read and studied the work of many many artists, I've never really been enthralled by any one to the point where people could really see it in my work. I've always loved Michelangelo, Giacometti, Rodin, John Singer Sargent, Rembrandt, and Mucha--and I keep coming back to them with new appreciation--but in terms of influence on my work, I don't think it was the work of any particular artist(s). Instead, I would credit my early interest in comic books for really making me want to draw, and later my instructors at Art Center College of Design for really helping me find my own way as a creative artist. Not only were they excellent guides for the study of art, but they have also served as my role models for my teaching career as well. In terms of the "look" of my watercolors which many people note for how peculiar it is, I'd credit that to the fact that I was a watercolor painter who went to a school where they didn't teach that subject. They simply taught you how to paint. (In acrylic and oil primarily.)
