ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

I have always represented the human condition and its ironic relationship with life throughout my artistic practice. Currently my creative applications have shifted direction to explicitly exploring the human figure from life through traditional means. Through this I will juxtapose classical figurative techniques with contemporary ideas and my personal exploration of life. Producing work that not only challenges both genres but the individual viewer.

Regular lessons are set up to introduce students to a method and techniques free from the pressure of the model room. Students will begin working from plaster casts, specifically the David's features by Michelangelo. Upon completion of the David's features students will then sculpt a skull after this they will move onto portraiture.  Lessons are taught in small classes,  currently 3 students per class due to Covid restrictions. Lessons are 3 hours long and are sold in 5 lesson blocks of $300. Please email me direct if you are interested.

Regular lessons are also available!
