Commission Examples

Faces talk to me even when the person isn’t speaking. I spend hours with my subjects discovering them, deciding what personality I want to depict. My objective, is to create a painting that invites the viewer to have a personal interview with my subject, to ask, “What are they thinking?” “Are they proud, mischievous, brave, envious, bored, relaxed,?”

Another goal is to have work that satisfies the senses. I find portraits to be the most intriguing and challenging subject matter. My paintings are realistic. Many of my recent paintings are larger than life-size portraits, done in a very detailed, labor-intensive style. I devote my efforts to immortalizing the subject by capturing their essence.

Will do commissions from live settings or photographs.
