Drawing with an attitude. Drawing from life is essential to helping the artist understand and convey shape and form and spatial relationships. Drawing the human figure provides that additional element…emotion and attitude.
Every model has things to say. My work is about the person and personality…some interact with props to create a character, others choose poses with objects that express individualism, while some choose the naked truth.
My images are a response to the individual(s), mood and character…an attempt to frame the personality and allow the viewer to celebrate the model’s world captured at a particular moment in time.
It is essential that I feel an emotional connection to the subject since it is my goal to translate that emotion to the viewer. During my work sessions, I stay focused on what is happening within the environment of light on and around the model as well as what is coming from within me and the individual in front of me. I strive to capture the disposition of the moment, whatever it may be. It is a celebration of the human being and the form God created.
