My goal as a Portrait Artist Painter is to create a timeless masterpiece, a work of art for whoever it may be.

I am motivated and insist on every commission to be the highest and most aesthetic quality possible.

Testimonials:
A painting is never complete and it's only up to the artist to decide when it's completed. I continually look over and over my work in progress and continue to refine it, make changes by continually coming back to the canvas sometimes for days after enabling me to look at it with a fresh eye and evaluate its progress. When it's completed I then feel it's now part of my ever growing family. Then I know it's complicated. And look forward to it's unveiling.

At that point I then get enormous pleasure from clients emotions , validations and acknowledgements upon their first gaze.
