First impressions are everything. It is that initial emotion that stays with us, creating a connection, a lasting memory. When I paint a portrait or figure, I focus on capturing the life, emotion and character of my subject, using the contrast of light, shadows, and warm and cool colors.
With each stroke of my brush, I am able to express more of myself than I ever could in words. If I can capture an expression or a fleeting moment, catapulting you to another place, then I have succeeded; I have communicated and hopefully brought a smile to your face and joy to your heart.
I believe painting is a gift given to me and inspired by God, creator of all. To Him be the Glory.
