​It is a privilege to paint portraits.  Each person is utterly unique, well loved.  It is said the eyes are the windows to the soul.  My job is to capture more than the physical representation of eyelids, eyelashes, iris, pupil.  I want you to look at your loved ones eyes and feel that loved family member gazing back at you.

Portraits should capture that instantly recognizable fleeting expression - the turn of the head, the piercing glance or the tender smile.

Painting is a collaboration with my client.  I want to ensure that the oil painting and pencil drawing I do for you will touch you deeply and create a lasting memory that you will cherish.
