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 P+A in Hollywood, CA, where clients include feature film, streaming, and television.
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.
Framed paintings start around 400, unframed sketches start at 150.
