Portraiture

Lady Stardust, 20x24, oil on panel

Drawing was my first introduction to art as a child; it provided a way of escape into a world where I could make things as I wanted them. Drawing has become for me a way of studying the world around me and sharpening my skills as an artist. I enjoy the challenge of figure drawing and portraits as a break from the long hours spent finishing out my oil paintings.  Below you will find a mix of finished drawings, figure drawings, and portraits of friends.  I rarely show this work, so if you are interested in seeing one in person you will have to come by the studio and take a look.  I also do portraits on commission occasionally.  Drawings are an affordable way to have original art in your home and make a very thoughtful gift.  Send me an email if you are interested.
