David Pullman is an award-winning and versatile painter and illustrator who lives and works on Manhattan's Upper West Side.  His work ranges from portrait commissions, fine oil and watercolor paintings [done with his right hand] to caricature drawings [done with his left hand].  His work has been exhibited at The National Academy of Design, The National Arts Club, Walden International and the Juno Gallery, amongst others. David is a former instructor at Parsons School of Design, 92nd St Y and Marymount College.

3WN:  How did you get started in this industry?

David:  I began drawing at a very young age, it was something I was innately interested in.  As a kid I loved copying cartoons from the daily comic strips.  In class I would daydream and draw to escape the tedious lessons and unhappier aspects of childhood, but mainly for the love of drawing.

During high school I discovered a natural ability to draw caricatures, much to the discontent of my subjects, to put it mildly.  By the time I entered college and art school I began painting and looking at artists in museums.  I studied art and illustration and soon found my work published in magazines, while receiving awards and recognition for my fine art paintings.  In a word, art has been my constant companion.

3WN:  What is your teaching philosophy?

David:  As an art student I had many wonderful teachers who shared their knowledge and these are things I would like to pass on to my students.  Beginning with an introduction to basic techniques and materials used for creating a drawing or painting.  I also like to exchange ideas and experiences with my students and listen to what they expect to learn and achieve.

I have lots of plants, which I take good care of, watching as they blossom and grow.  My approach to teaching is similar, nurture my students, encourage them and watch them grow.
