Do you have a current art project? Idea? Do you need help with it?

Yes, and No.

What types of art materials/mediums do you like to work with?

Pencil, ink, and charcoal.

What is your figure drawing experience and what would you like from a figure drawing meetup?

I want to draw real figures. I haven't done so in years, and I miss the discipline and insights that it brings.

Besides making art - how do you express yourself creatively?

I sing and teach Gregorian Chant, as well as make my own songs of an as-yet-undefined genre, which often require lyrics, which sometimes turn into poems—or vice versa.

What are your passions?

Art, chant, music, August Kleinzahler's poetry, Christopher Alexander's thoughts on beauty, Bakhtin's thoughts on dialogism, church architecture, and trying to be artistically creative and socially engaged.
