Figurative Studies


The most challenging and fulfilling aspect of my practice as an artist,
was (and is), the study of the human figure.

I found that by systematically studying the multifaceted componates of drawing the human form,
I could then comprehend and express the whole form.

In the video below, I describe my approach. 

"Practice is the key.
Fearless practice brings success.
