What are your passions?

Drawing in public places, great live music of all sorts, long urban and countryside walks, reading, architecture, politics, teaching architecture and urbanism

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

No current large projects - but have worked on a large mural and would like to get back to painting and water color. Mostly I use portable sketchbooks

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

Pencil, charcoal, pen, oil pastels, sometimes water color

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

Have been most recently involved in San Luis Obispo in a local art museum sponsored weekly session with model, about a year ago. I like a combination of short poses and medium poses - mostly under 20 minutes. I use a variety of medium - pencil, pen, charcoal, oil pastels. I need to push myself into more loose and expressive work and tackle color

Besides making art - how do you express yourself creatively?

Trained as an architect and while not currently active it has been the primary life long creative outlet. Consider my history of community planning and affordable housing development a major creative outlet. Also gardening. Also writing


I am a long time sketcher and journal writer trained as an architect. I have taught some drawing but have a strong need to keep working on both general sketching and figure drawing from models.
