I enjoy making fine art that is beautiful, accessible and meaningful to you and the people you invite to see your custom work of art. I like to bring out the best qualities in the portrait subject, to enhance a moment, to bring out the important elements and details, minimize distracting elements, amplify the colors and create an overall interesting and balanced composition.
My chosen medium is pastel. Pastels are like chalks that come in all colors of the rainbow in the lightest of lights and the darkest of darks. Using heavy, high quality and archival sanded paper, it is possible to work on a large scale. When the medium is used well, pastel paintings have a very vibrant quality, and if properly cared for, last for generations.
