One of the greatest challenges a portrait artist faces is creating a portrait that generates emotion. A portrait painting can be so much more than a good likeness of the subject. I enjoy collaborating with my clients to create a beautiful painting capturing the warmth, love, dignity and spirit of the sitter. The selection of portraits above includes portrait paintings of men and women, official corporate portrait paintings, family portrait paintings of children and pet portraits. Color and design are important elements in my oil paintings and pastel portraits. Fine art portraiture is an enduring art form that has been practiced for thousands of years. The museums are filled with portraits that someone commissioned. This is timeless classical art that I am honored and humbled to be a part of.
