Throughout history the human form has been one of the most criticized subjects for an artist to render. Often times artist choose their subject matter to record history, question social acceptance, and challenge political agenda. I hope my art will be useful in all of these forums, while allowing me to share my philosophy and beliefs with others.
The human form and its use in art have always aroused me. I strive to produce artwork that is erotic and pushes societies limits of what is acceptable as erotic artistic expression and what is pornographic. It is intriguing to see what one person considers tasteful and erotic while another may find it to be offensive.
I specialize in tasteful nude gay erotica, and work with various media and techniques to produce works in color and or black and white, but especially like doing works in black and white. Sometimes color will be applied directly to the piece or the work will be scanned on computer and digitally redone in full color.
I was an Audio Visual Technician - Graphic illustrator Specialist in the United States Marines where I received a meritorious mast for producing battalion and company logos of unsurpassed quality. After leaving the Marines in 1987 I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. While attending school I started my own business and named it Art Movements Of Pittsburgh. Discouraged by my instructors and other local artist I never gave up my dream of doing tasteful erotic art and male nude drawings.
In 1989 I sent some samples of my artwork to several international publications. Immediately I sold the 5 pieces and was asked to do more work. In 1996 I decided to get away from the magazines and look for alternative places to sell and display my art.
Currently I am involved with the Tom of Finland Foundation where my art has been added to their permanent collection. I also attended the L.A. Erotic Art Weekend and Art Fair, and look forward to continuing with my art and growing as an artist.
