Questions about my Art

How long have you been painting?
I have been an artist all of my life. I started taking private drawing lessons at age 10, and private painting lessons at age 16. I attended college at Alfred University in New York and Towson University in Maryland, and have a bachelor’s degree in Art & Graphic Design.

What medium do you paint in?
I tend to paint my smaller works in acrylic (since it dries faster) and my larger works in oil.

What are the differences between your acrylic and oil paintings?
My acrylic painting style tends to be a bit tighter, while my oil painting style appears looser. In my oil paintings, you can see individual brush strokes. Oil paintings have more of a sheen or glossy finish, while my acrylic paintings appear to have a matte finish.

How do you paint your silhouette paintings?
I typically refer to photos for elements like anatomy, bikes, recognizable landmarks, etc. The photos I refer to are usually not silhouettes, but I use them for assistance with drawing my silhouettes accurately. For the skies, I will sometimes look at photos, but my skies are much more my own interpretation of the colors and movement of clouds, and they usually take on an impressionistic look. The juxtaposition of the dramatic, dark silhouettes and the vibrant, colorful skies are meant to evoke emotion in the viewer about their own experiences in the places and activities that are depicted.
