Welcome to AllArtWorks Featured Artist Series!

1. What other profession is similar to being an artist and why?

An architect and interior decorator. They must use their artistic eye and mindset while setting up their projects.

2. What’s the nicest thing you can remember someone said about your work, or an individual piece?

When someone stated that my painting really touched them emotionally.

3. What’s one thing you’d like everyone to know about you as an artist?

When I'm out and about with friends, they are unaware that I'm constantly on the lookout for a good setup for a later work.
4. What was the last piece of art that you saw that blew you away?

When I first saw the actual work of Rembrandt in Amsterdam, instead of merely photos of his work.

5. What’s something you haven’t done but you want to do in art/painting?

A portrait of a loved one.

6. Which artist do you like better - Ingres or Delacroix, and why?*

Delacroix. Most of the subjects in the painting are not in a static pose, but are dynamic. There is so much going on to hold your attention.

*The reason we ask about Delacroix and Ingres is because they were contemporaries with wildly different styles!
