smoothcut asked: For centuries the female form has been a favorite for artists. Congrats for finding an original and distinctive style for the nude. Super! By the way I reblogged your terrible Situation w/fraudster so others could be warned. I will also keep an eye out for your unmistakable work online. I hope it never happens again. You've inspired me to take a fresh look at the nude. I wish you the best on your creative endeavors.

Thank you so much for your lovely message. Its people like yourself that inspire me.. Its people like yourself that might also save me or another artist in future. Thank you

Drawing is a way I can get out what I’m feeling inside. If you can see it, I have succeeded.

Dear Followers,
Recently I received some unfortunate news (from a fan of my Facebook page) of art theft in regards to my work. A so called artist based in Canada was publishing my work on his website, Facebook page & Instagram claiming it as his own. He had dragged images from my tumblr blog and my Facebook page and took it an evil step further and decided to make prints from these images for sale. I WAS DEVASTATED.
For starters, I DO NOT DO PRINTS. I would like all the works I sell to be the only original version. This is a personal decision but something I strongly believe in. Also, all the images I post online are low res so his prints wouldn’t be clear. Even worse…he is selling my work at poor quality.
Dear followers, could you please reblog this. I want it to be known that this is a serious issue that artists face when they put their work online.
In case if any of you see what appears to be my work circulating in print form on any social media site please consult me. Once again, I repeat, I do not do prints. If it wasn’t for that lovely fan consulting me of this thief I would not have known and couldn’t file the legal steps I had taken to stop him.
So putting work onllne is a double edged sword. I have copyright now and know the steps to take to stop the illegal sale of my work. My intention is to let you know, so you are aware as you may help me or any other artist out in future. Thank you
