I think of my drawing and painting style as a mixture of romance and architecture. Romance refers the the C and S curves I use to create the gestures in my rough sketches. In the world of yin/yang, I tend to think of the "romantic curvaceousness" as a feminine energy. The architecture refers to the short, but present straight lines that give strength to a figure, to the work. This quality of structure, solidity, and support feels masculine in energy to me. Of course, we each are a combination of both qualities, in various mixtures, as is each of my artworks.

Women and men carry their bodies differently. I am not sure if this is natural or learned, but I tend to think that "everything is true." I hope that you enjoy these artworks of the female figure. I prefer strong individuals in my friendships and more curvy women in my forms. Still, there are so many bodies to portray, each with a story to tell . . .

Please click on the cropped thumbnail images above that interest you. You may read about the creations of some of these works on my art blog.

All original paintings and drawings are for sale, unless noted otherwise. Please contact the studio or one of the galleries, if interested in one or more of my original female figure paintings. Click here for male figure paintings and drawings. Thank you.
