Shadow Play Series

I have always been a lover of light and these days now find myself a chaser of shadows.

 

I am a contemporary realist portrait and figure artist living the dream in Hawai’i. While in my studio I find myself constantly using the plant life, tropical atmosphere, and beautiful brilliant sun to capture my muses in unusual and remarkable positions playing and reflecting in elaborate cast shadows. One of the most important aspects of my work is my desire to help foster an inclusive atmosphere in the fine art world by portraying a culturally rich group of subjects, as well as representing an inclusive milieu of body types.

 

I believe that the modern art scene in general, from its exhibiting artists to its muses, should be ever more representational of all the unique citizens of this earth, so I use my work to lovingly highlight the beauty and character in everyday people from all over the world.
