Cant wait to see where you take it!

I'm really amazed at how dynamic your figures are and how they flow so nicely with the background. I really like that your art relates back to classical art but is still new and unique at the same time. I am sure I will have lots of fun following your blog. :D

I've started a blog to feature artists, and I was wondering if you would give me permission to feature your work! You will be fully credited and will have a link to your web site, as well as all images posted. If you are interested, I would love to put up some of your art, 3 pieces to be exact, of your choice or I can choose for you! And at the bottom of every feature, there is a warning to all readers to not steal, use or reproduce the art.

The web site is

There are two parts to the feature. A fun part (it’s a Mad Libs theme! If you do not know what mad libs are, please go here: ) and a small questionnaire!

1)What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
2)Which is your favourite piece and why?
3)How would you describe your style? What makes your work unique?
4)What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?

Mad Lib (or ART Lib!) words:
1) plural noun
2) number
3) adjective
4) adverb
5) adjective
6) body part
7) adjective
8) room
9) noun
10) noun
11) adverb
12) something with a roof
13) number
14) historial figure
15) famous person
16) animal

I know it seems like a lot, but it’s a ton of fun and I hope that you will take the time to fill it all out. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Also, if you happen to do link exchanges, I would love to do one with you! If you are interested, just let me know and I will put your link up immediately!


P.S. Sorry I had to do this here, but I love your art and I just could not find any links anywhere for your e-mail! Sorry!
