Landscape, Nude and Portrait
My inspiration for drawing primarily comes from the Appalachian mountains and streams and the neolithic ancient sites of Ireland and the British Isles (Stone Circles, barrows, Roman antiquity, Celtic culture, etc.). I'm now working on drawings of stone circles, ancient Britons, Celtic "dryads" or tree spirits, patterns of insect chewed leaves, and other nature related images. I'm influenced by the curvilinear patterns in organic shapes of nature and the human form.
I use photography as a tool to create drawing references for my art projects ; I view shooting outdoors as a kind of "glorified" art studio where shooting pictures is the first step in drawing my concepts :-)
I intend to keep on exploring new artistic concepts and I'm hoping I can engage in creative "symbiosis" with other models, artists, and photographers.
As this point I'm mostly influenced by the works of Georgia O'Keefe, Kandinsky, Francis Bacon, Dali, and Yves Tanguy.
