Drawing the human figure from life has been crucial to the development of many artists. For me, this has been a continuing passion from undergraduate school and throughout my career.
At the university, I taught a life drawing class nearly every semester and conducted numerous workshops in other venues as well.
My own figurative studies, demonstrating in class, and watching talented students draw, have been a key part of my development
My own figure pieces have often been the basis for later developed works, and the “feel” of working from the figure has informed nearly all of my work.
