“I love to draw all kinds of models, either live or via Video Chat. The drawing session is an intimate situation where the models reveal themselves physically and sometimes emotionally. Ultimately, the drawings show the personality of the models with my direction all rolled into one. A drawing session to me is a moment of meditation, conversation and always leaves me with a feeling of great satisfaction.”
