After discovering the work of Terry Miura, a talented group of artists, and many pet portrait requests; I was inspired to close a chapter in the dental field and pursue a new career in art. I studied at Watts Atelier of the Arts and was honored to be featured among esteemed instructors at The New Masters Academy.
I love to work 'alla prima,' a way of sketching in oil where the artist works 'wet into wet,' preferably from life.
I am currently a sketch artist and entertainment illustrator for BLT Communications in Hollywood, CA, where clients include feature film, streaming, television, and Broadway.
Rates are based on size. Generally, portraits or 'heads' are great in smaller sizes while a body would require a larger canvas. Check out my 'pets' gallery for ideas.
Currently, the most popular painting sizes are in the $650 to $1500 range, though I offer 'Fun Sized' mini portraits from $400 framed.
