Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
A recognized master in the medium of graphite, David will surprise you with what is possible using only a pencil. On his technique, David explains, "While many artists draw with an emphasis on lines, I use light and shadow-contrast-to delineate surfaces, much like a painter uses color. In that respect, my approach to drawing is more like painting."

Discovering in junior high that he wanted to be an artist, he has spent the intervening years exploring many media and has been able to make his youthful dream come true. Growing up in Oregon he spent many years as the senior photographer for Harry & David and the Jackson & Perkins mail order catalogs. So chances are pretty good you have seen his photos!
He says, "It was a great job that I loved very much but my passion always lay with drawing. In fact, the photography supported me while I began my art career and allowed me to, fifteen years ago, turn my attention to becoming a full-time artist and I've never looked back!"
Coming to the art fairs about five years ago with his drawings he says this is the best and most risky decision he has ever made. He has embraced the lifestyle wholeheartedly and the shows and the patrons have reinforced his choice. Mainly traveling the Western events from Washington to Texas he is piling up awards and is enthusiastic about his "new" career.
See him in April in The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival near Houston and at the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival.
