The works on this blog are “hot off the press.” I draw everyday and believe it is important to show that work. That’s what an artist does. I also believe that it doesn’t matter whether everyone or even only a few like a given work or not. If they are interested, they will take a look and make their own judgment. Of course, it is nicer to hear sincere praise, when it happens.
I have been drawing and painting all my life. Now part of the “New Symbolist” movement which encompasses both Goth, fantasy and tattoo art as well as the century-old work of Odilon Redon, I focus on archetypal and mythic imagery to evoke emotional themes and to reference darker fantasies. I have an abiding interest in figurative drawing, working on paper and exploring new ways to handle traditional materials. I studied with Edward Millman, a WPA muralist; at Purchase College; and at the Art Students League in New York.
