I love to paint and spend everyday in my studio creating. I am passionate about painting people and faces, and there is not a face on the planet that does not deserve the honor of being immortalized on canvas. My intention is to paint with sensitivity and respect for my subject, as well as to bring out the deep emotion that resides within, without the use of shock tactics. I choose to paint from life, so in addition to painting from the model, I will also venture outside the studio to do some landscape painting when the weather allows. My life is about art and painting, and it is my hope that the love I have for my work transfers to those who collect it.
