" urrently I work mostly with graphite, although I will soon be doing some work with charcoal and pastels. I can't claim to be completely self-tought; I receive input and advice from an older brother who lives in L.A. In the eighties he perfected a technique with pastels that at first glance looked photographic. I am striving to work towards that goal. The celebrity pictures you see here were done in an attempt to show accuracy. I will gladly draw anyone as long as the source material is appropriate. If necessary I can do photography work myself at my studio. If you would like to see original work there are a number of portraits on display at MSc, and soon there will be some at the Mane Tease hair salon located at 1219 SW Main Blvd, in Lake City.."
