Painting oil on canvas portraits is my passion and making pictures has been the core of my existence for many years. It's always thrilling to experience the moment a painting takes on a life of its own with a single brush stroke. Every portrait I paint provides me with the opportunity to create a work of art that conveys beauty, emotion and timelessness. My goal in making portraits is to capture the essence and the depth of my subjects’ personalities. Through alteration, I aim to raise questions of ones personality, attitude, and fears through their portrait.
