Body of a Woman was inspired by two things. My gorgeous model, Amber and a poem by Pablo Neruda entitled Body of a Woman from his book, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair. The canvas has the poem written on the back both in Spanish and English. "Body of a woman, white hills, white thighs. You look like a world, lying in surrender." My hope is that I have done his beautiful poem justice… Continue reading… 0 comments

Gitana Rosa Gallery Presents: HUNG Checking Out the Contemporary Male Opening Reception: Friday, September 17, 7-10PM September 17 __" October 16, 2010 To kick off the fall season, Williamsburg__™s Gitana Rosa Gallery, refracts the male gaze. Hung, a multimedia exhibition, hones in on the male nude. A heroic figure in Greek, Roman and Renaissance art, the male nude proves more fascinating than ever. Whether it is relegated to obscurity or exalted past recognition, men__™s bodies continue to challenge both men__™s and women__™s perceptions. Love them or hate them, Hung__™s male nudes tease the line between the sensuous and the glaringly obvious to present a nuanced portrait of the contemporary male… Continue reading… 0 comments

Yesterday I added a new gallery to my studio. A Homage to Curvy Women celebrates women's bodies and their beautiful curves. I've always loved to draw larger women, they remind me of voluptuous landscape. Hills and valleys. Woman historically have many issues with their bodies, be they small or large, fat or thin, long-legged, short-waisted. I find all of you quite beautiful. However there have been women (and men) that I've not wanted to draw or paint. Its about who they are and not what they are. And in case the men are feeling left out, I'll be adding a gallery for you soon. Interestingly, I do find larger women are more open to being drawn than larger men. Enjoy my large and lovelies. I'll be happy to hear what you think of them. You'll find them right here ..… Continue reading… 2 comments

I do normally try to keep my blogs positive, however sometimes a person just needs to vent. During my career as an artist, I've been disappointed many times by galleries who refused to return my work; people who have reneged on sales; and so many others who in some way or other, took advantage of my being an artist to disrespect that this is my career. I've come to understand that many people have a twisted view of the value of an artist's work. I've learnt to deal with knowing that "no matter what!" people will steal my images off the internet and even in some instances, claim them as their own. I've learnt to move on and I've also "toughened up"… Continue reading… 1 comment

This is a group show celebrating the 150th anniversary of the publication of the Calamus edition of Leaves of Grass.

On Valentine's Day this year, Birmingham, Alabama hosted their very first Erotic Art Exhibition complete with belly dancers, (they were fabulous) masks, flashlights and most importantly, some really wonderful artwork. Leo Ticheli the organiser of this innovative event, unsure if he'd be run out of town or not, courageously rounded up his artists from both the immediate area and some of us from further afield to put together this event. Having been invited to attend and given a special mask to wear, I just as courageously headed south with a few of my paintings and drawings to lend a New York touch to the affair. The event brought in probably about four or five hundred people, we even witnessed a line at the door to get in… Continue reading… 3 comments

The day I decided to become an artist, I decided to do what is art. My decision to explore erotica and/or pornography in my painting and drawing was based on wanting to provide a message of acceptance and tolerance for one another. No judgements. One of the hardest lessons for us all to absorb. In my work I strive to demonstrate tolerance of self. Our bodies, minds, souls are to be honoured. Regardless of whether its Fine Art or Erotica or what some consider pornography that we're talking about, both are created from my time on earth, from my soul, my heart and my intellect, my sexuality and my physical being. To me, creativity is all of those things interwoven and working together… Continue reading… 1 comment
