I have been drawing since I could pick up a pencil. My formal training was at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I also have had a lot of on the job learning. I am constantly learning new things every day and if I do not know how to do something I will make it my mission to learn it.
Sculpture. I love getting my hands dirty and the satisfaction of seeing a finished piece is second to none.
Yes I do, please click here to head over to my commissions page.
I and most other artists hear this question of some variation of it often, usually followed by the statement "It's just a drawing." I would answer that question with another question. Why does a lawyer charge so much, or a doctor, or a plumber, or any other profession where money and time has been spent by the respective person to train and perfect the specific skills the job requires? When you hire one of those people you are paying for and getting all those months and years of hard work they put into learning the skills they need to provide the service you require. Would you tell a lawyer "It's just a lawsuit." The same goes for artists, we went to school, we interned, we apprenticed, for years to get the skills necessary to do as many see it, "just a drawing". When you commission me you are not just paying for the artwork, you are paying for the skills I went to school for, the supplies and programs I use, and the time it takes to do all of it.
