Studio Life


Many artists play with a variety of subjects but, in the interest of developing a professional image, we are almost forced to choose one aspect for our focus. I work best immersing myself in something for 3-5 years before moving on. As a studio needs to make money, at one time I did animal portraits. Left: is Spike, a much loved cat.

Children and animals seem to go together. I remember someone persuading me to paint their children by saying: “Just think of them as family pets.” I sketched their children in a playground and everyone seemed happy with the results.
