About Robert Nelson

My story is simple. I like to draw and paint people that show life in their face. I am most attracted to portraiture, but I like to push the boundaries of pure
observational drawings and paintings. When I am working on a piece, I like to find the character in my subject matter. I want a mood to be expressed, and
a feeling conveyed. I always want to bring something unique to the subject and go beyond just copying.

I've been a drawing and painting teacher for 19 years at Mayfair High School in the city of Lakewood, yet I've always believed that a true artist discovers and uncovers, and does not wait by in an idle position, looking to be spoon-fed. If you like an artist, emulate him/her, until you are able to perfect your skill and branch off on your own path. It has all been done before, but it can be recreated in a unique way, if you allow it. You can get ideas from artist publications and websites, but you can only grow by doing. Get in the studio and enjoy the discovery.

My two initial mentors were my father and my colleague, Ricki Farrell. Two different artists, yet very inspirational. The main thing that they taught me was the importance of perfecting your drawing skills, keeping an open-mind, and if it was done, you can do it. One of the most fun things to do is to look at a piece of artwork and figure out how the artist accomplished the effects. Then I take it back to the studio and experiment. What is new to me, is what keeps art alive.

I have been blessed with a unique gift from God. It has brought me much happiness to be able to visualize and make a thought tangible. Because of all my blessings, I give 50% of the profits from my artwork to the Lord. God bless and enjoy.
