I am a life-long artist, drawing and painting since I was a child. I specialize in portraits -- both people and pets. All of my paintings are created from photos. My goal, regardless of the subject, is to capture the emotion, energy and memory of a special moment in time. It's for this reason that when doing a portrait that I help clients to select a photo that immediately evokes a special memory and tells a piece of that person or animal's life.
I am currently accepting commissions. All of my paintings are done with oil on either a smooth panel or canvas. Each completed painting is coated with a protective varnish.
