“The most fulfilling and accessible way to appreciate art is to provide you with work crafted from the same foundational principles the masters used. My approach and dedication to learning the fundamentals of all aspects of painting and drawing is based on the acquisition of knowledge. Making the effort to learn as much as is available from the time tested methods of past master artists is the best way to create a work of art that embodies beauty, expert craftsmanship, and that magical something that holds our complete attention when standing before it. Instead of dismissing the high principles of past masters I employ them to create my own unique work. This allows for a perfect marriage of traditional and contemporary and leaves you with something you can understand. Diligence in training, love of the craft, and the never ending pursuit of perfect beauty are the cornerstones of my efforts.” - JD
