Artist Statement

Art for me is a magical experience. The limitless play of light, color and texture fills me with wonder and touches me deeply. People fascinate me with the diversity of their personalities, emotions and behaviors. When I receive a commission I take the time to get to know my subject or subjects so that I not only capture an excellent likeness, but portray them in a manner that reflects who they really are. This is always a process of wonderful possibilities for myself and my clients.
