 Talents are in the eye of the beholder.  So is beauty.  Whether the canvas is an art board or a human being,
I love rendering personal beauty and image.  

I’ve been told my portraits capture essence, and that I don’t apply makeup I render a face.  
I strive to capture that as well as the hidden biographical nuances by looking intuitively.
Working to produce a lasting personal revelation yet still keeping the photo realistic quality in the image.  
Sometimes it’s like opening Pandora’s box. 

I choose my image then start the development of the character inside the photo.  Whether taken yesterday or 
centuries ago, the photo becomes the opening for the presence that eventually surfaces. 


I love subtle inflexions of tone and texture.  I work in oil, watercolor, and other media, 
but colored pencils are my passion.
