I have an inexplicable, irresistible urge to create portraits. Whether it be a person, pet, or thing, it’s still a portrait to me. I’m continually fascinated by the fact that a painting can be more “real” than a photograph — more than just a picture, but an interpretation of personality and life. A painted portrait of a person is a mysterious combination of expressive art and the likeness of that person at a particular moment in time. As I paint a portrait, I don’t focus on painting the perfect nose or flawless skin. I want to capture something much deeper than that. I want to paint the beauty of a subject that comes from their singular uniqueness, their imperfections, the personality that sparkles in their eyes.

The relationships I have with my clients and subjects are a driving force in my work. I’m passionate about creating a visual collaboration that brings you as much joy in viewing it as I have in painting it. Thank you for visiting my work, and please don’t hesitate to reach out, for whatever reason.
