Activity


I've been getting a lot of messages from people inquiring about my painting methods. Yes, all of the works you see here in my gallery are created completely traditionally using oil paints. If you are sincerely interested in learning more about how I do this, I recommend following my blog, Muddy Colors.

The blog is dedicated to providing free art education, and is specifically geared towards students. Myself, as well as 12 other astounding artists, share our methods, our sketches, reference photos, and progress shots DAILY.

You can visit our blog at: www.muddycolors.blogspot.com

I read Patricia Briggs books and I love them.  The covers are too wonderful for words!

Do you have a reference/character model for the Mercy Thompson book covers?

I love all the covers you've done for Patricia Brigg's Mercy Thompson series, and I've always wondered whom you based Mercy's likeness on: is it a specific First Nation or Native American model?
