For as long as I can remember I have been expressing myself through visual art. The human face has always been especially captivating for me. The complexity of emotions that a face can assume never fails to amaze me. I am enthralled by our ability to read and react to each other whether studying a painting, photograph or living person.
My philosphy as a painter is to reach beyond the physical and portray personality using my tools, knowledge and imagination.
I enjoy all the stages of painting a portrait but especially as it nears completion. It is very gratifying to see my subject's uniqueness emerge from the canvas and witness their true character revealed through the act of painting.
