Portraits celebrate life!

Every face is a unique, beautiful work of art that eloquently illustrates the wonderful life story of a person – their experience, strength, hope, love, joy, struggles, triumphs, and disappointments are all right there for the world to see. A well painted portrait will tell an entire life story in just a glance. Portraits are so much more than capturing an exact likeness; they capture the energy and essence of a person, and the time and space that they occupy.

My medium of choice for portrait painting is Pastel or a mix of Charcoal and Pastel on acid free paper. I use my fingers to blend the colors and tones, and there is a sense of immediacy and intimacy with the work when I’m actually touching the surface. It feels as though the colors are pouring right through my fingers! I also enjoy creating Mosaic Portraits, where each and every tiny piece of tile is carefully cut and placed by hand.

I am always on the lookout for new and interesting portrait commissions. Contact me today and let’s get started on your masterpiece….the work of art that is….you!
