I have been painting for 20 years, 15 years as a professional muralist and reproduction artist. My passion is to paint people.
I have always been an insightful and compassionate person and I feel that when painting people I can use these virtues to generate a truthful image of what this person is about. For me, there is nothing more exciting than pulling an image of a human, layer by layer, from a canvas. So many other subtleties get caught up in the image, bits of my own image, emotions and judgments are soon staring back at me. By painting someone not only do I discover their truth but also my own.
