Hello, I'm Adrian. How can I help with your creative needs? I have a BFA from Missouri State University and have worked in the field as a professional designer. After some time in the market I found that studio work and instruction were rewarding endeavors and now primarily occupy myself with freelance projects. I am well versed in the foundation studio arts, especially drawing. Life drawing, especially the figure, is where I excel. I experiment with various media, techniques, and drawing surfaces to push the limits of the discipline. Drawing is an indispensable tool for the artist. It is usually the method by which any idea is first given visual form.
I teach composition as it applies to visual and three dimensional design. Technique must be supported by a sound compositional structure. This is where history comes in. Awareness and understanding of artistic movements, principles, ideas, and the historical context that shaped them is invaluable the creative. Art does not exist in a vacuum, it is a reflection of its surroundings. The history can be difficult to absorb, as it is so often presented in a boring and dry manner. I make it relevant and understandable. Igniting interest in the subject is the best way to make sure that it is retained.
What makes art so interesting and yet difficult is its subjective nature. There is no 2+2=4. There is no right or wrong. Everything is open to interpretation, and what one audience praises another will pan. Versatility is key to success. To see the problem from many viewpoints is to have a richer understanding and better chance to create something beautiful. I hope to help you do just that.
Thanks for reading.
