Demian Legg

Humans need food for fuel, sleep to dream, air to breathe. For me art is just as essential as any of these. More so, because it is how I let in the world and share it with others. As a child my mother handed me a crayon and said draw what you see and that is what I still do today. I'm primarily self taught but I have long admired and studied the old Renaissance masters which reinforced my decision to work as a realist. Though my paintings all have a story, I want the viewer to create their own narrative; to make it as real to them as it is to me.

I do custom work on request. These are often portraits from life or from photographs, but I'll consider any project and quote you a fair price based on size and materials.
