My goal is to capture the subject's unique personality on canvas. I work with my clients to understand who they are and how to paint them. Clients often choose a series of 12x12 paintings of siblings or pets to hang together.

Paula: portrait of a woman
Mary: portrait of a woman
Betty Ann
Varune: portrait of a man
Ramones Kid
Josie: Portrait of a Girl
Trevor: portrait of a boy
Portrait of Ella
Emily: self portrait
Little Girl

I took this photo of Mary in a scarf shop in Fez, Morocco. I cropped it very tightly to create the painting. The photo was overexposed and her eyes lacked detail in the photo, but not in the painting!

The original photo of May was taken with her sister Josie. For May's portrait, I focused on her face, especially her eyes. They were visiting a farm with goats that day and really enjoying the animals!

This is the original photograph that I used to paint Josie's portrait. This was her first time on a boat and she was having an amazing day. She really likes mermaids so I wanted to make her hair fly in the wind, something which obviously wasn't happening in the photo!

When I work from photos, I like to use a tight crop to zoom in on an aspect of the subject's face or personality. 

My goal for is to create something unique, modern, and fun: a portrait that is more a work of art than a portrait.
