This painting is a figure study and portrait of a handsome man. I wanted to do a study of this gorgeous man and his athletic musculature while keeping a focus on painterly brushwork, texture and light. I'm happy that I also captured a sweet expressiveness in his face. The golden tones of his body are complemented by the warm blue-grey of the background. There's a casual feel combined with moodiness that makes this painting both contemporary and timeless.

I have been drawing and making art in some form since I was four years old. I was born in Washington DC but, as the daughter of an American diplomat, spent much of my childhood in Japan, Korea, and Hawaii. I studied art at Parsons School of Design and afterwards traveled to Europe to learn from the masterpieces in the great museums of London, Paris, Rome and Florence. I studied oil painting at a private atelier in Lisbon and had my first solo exhibit there. My work is in numerous collections throughout the United States and Europe. I currently reside in Arlington Virginia, just across the river from Washington DC.
