*I am willing to negotiate on the final price of my original art pieces.
I am a self-taught artist. I began drawing at a very young age and continued to improve over time. In the past, I worked mainly with pen & ink, but within the last year have moved on to working with pencil and graphite. My main inspiration for moving onto pencil/graphite developed from reading and studying Boris Vallejo's and Julie Bell's book of illustrations. Boris has always been my favorite artist. His paintings are amazing and his graphite illustrations are as incredible.
I've found that as I go through life, I am occasionally presented with new inspirations that take my art to new levels. With the exception of Fantasy art, I am rarely inspired by a 'subject' but rather by people, individuals who bring something to my life just by knowing them or knowing of them. My MMA art was most directly inspired by Jason “Mayhem” Miller – who, although has went through rough patches in his career and life, has an infectious personality and a love for his fans – and Eddie Alvarez who is not only an amazing fighter, but an awesome husband and father. I take inspiration from those who possess a good heart and an honest love for mankind in general – even when, at times, some of them seem to lose their way for a space. I think we've all been there at one point or another. I am not a 'fair weather' fan, standing behind someone only when they're on top. Eddie Alvarez is pretty good at staying on top, but “Mayhem” has hit the mat pretty hard at times, went a little nuts outside the cage as well, but I still love the guy and will always be a fan.
About mid-way through 2012, I received a new inspiration when my daughter brought to my attention Clinton Anderson and his Downunder Horsemanship method of horse training. I quickly developed a great respect and admiration for Clinton as I learned more about who he was, his history and those who inspired him. Clinton's method for training horses is phenomenal, almost magical. But it is his love of helping others better themselves as well as their horses that truly made him stand out. He has a way with people, a way of communicating that I don't see very often. And his ability to make others laugh and feel at ease as he's teaching his method...it's incredible. I have drawn immense inspiration from Clinton and the evidence of that inspiration will soon be displayed here on my site. Anyone interested in learning about Clinton Anderson and his Downunder Horsemanship method can go to www.downunderhorsemanship.com or www.clintonanderson.com or to watch episodes of his horse training tv show, go to www.downunderhorsemanship.tv – You won't be disappointed in what you learn there.
