Above is a gestural figure drawing on archival paper, executed in preparation for a larger painting on canvas. This work is drawn from life with immediacy and sensitivity. The composition is simple yet expressive. I am inspired by classical themes and bring a contemporary perspective into my work through expressive line and minimal yet dynamic compositions. My drawings are an inexpensive way to have original artwork in your home.

---------CLIENT EXPERIENCE-------------------

"Smooth transaction, prompt communication and shipment, but most importantly, a SUPERB drawing--will be watching this shop."

"Beautiful painting. Excellent quality and worth every penny. Thank you!"

"Love this painting even more in person. Art was well packaged and arrived quickly. As an added delight, the package was beautifully wrapped and included a handwritten note from the artist - a nice, classic touch. Very pleased with this all-around excellent transaction."

"Really lovely. talented, friendly and punctual seller. thank you for a piece I'll enjoy for years to come."

"Despite all the hassles of dealing with an international buyer, Derek had a lot of patience and answered all my queries quickly and amiably. A great piece of work and am very much looking forward to living with this and having it hang on my wall for a very long time..."

---------ARTIST STATEMENT--------------------

"...and around his head the fair goddess set thick a golden cloud, and forth from the man made blaze a gleaming fire... there he stood and shouted... and when they heard the brazen voice of the son of Aeacus the hearts of all were dismayed." - Homer, The Iliad

I am influenced by the classical and the romantic, striving to mimic their monumentality, divinity and quiet brutality in my own work. Through paint and line I seek to capture the light of existence, that "gleaming fire", as well as to portray its gravity. I strive to celebrate the figure, its mysterious power and charisma.
