I am internally drawn to peaceful places, so within my artwork I create a sense of calm serenity, no matter what the subject matter.

Each piece has a realistic representational style where boundaries are blurred between real imagery and my imagination. I pay particular attention to light and composition to tie together the subject and its environment as a whole.

Each painting in this series is a black and white portrait with only the background and eyes having color. This draws you into the painting and allows different features to be seen at each passing.

BE AN ICON.

An oil portrait, an artistic representation of a person, has room for expression, power, passion, harmony, and life. In a world becoming less and less sensitive to the human condition, the more important portraiture becomes for preserving our humanity, culture, care, and what's most important - love.
