BIO: At the heart of it I am a simple artist. Brush, paint, and canvas are my tools. I have been a portrait artist since 1983, primarily graphite (pencil).
In 1994 I started to paint with oils and acrylics, I also took a job picture framing to be near the art world. I continued to learn and became a Master Certified Framer.
In 2005 at age 40, I went to college and earned my Bachelors of Fine Art.
In the spring of 2012 I was teaching a drawing class at a local art gallery. After a few weeks a student/friend who took my class to learn to draw the T.A.R.D.I.S. better said to me "Dimitri I know you watch and love all the same shows and movies I do. Supernatural, Firefly, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, and all the comic book movies. I have been to your website. Why don't you have any Fan Art?
And I said "What's Fan Art?"
4 years and over 500 fandom based paintings and drawings later and the rest is history.
Whether you're looking for a simple portrait or need help with a larger project, I would love to work with you.
Feel free to look through my portfolio for a sample of my work. If you have any questions, please contact me.
I approach my work with a unique perspective that takes into account your needs and your individual style. My style and technique are broad and flexible, developed over years of training and experience.
