Three to Watch in Fine Art Connoisseur magazine

IMG_1944.jpg

The May issue of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine offers a feature regularly seen in each issue which offers the editors an opportunity to briefly highlight the work of three up and coming artists. I am honored to be selected as one of the three described and for my painting, "The End of Summer" to be prominent displayed. 

As an artist, it is often hard to try and describe your own paintings, especially to characterize your body of work or your style. Writer Allison Malafronte does an excellent job in her short but insightful write-up in a single page of this issue. The online version is an easy read here

With so much thought, observation, and reflection behind each piece, it is clear why Drake’s paintings frequently cause viewers to pause.

Fine Art Connoisseur is available at fine bookstores everywhere, or you can view the article on line.
