I am an artist who works in oils, pastels and traditional drawing mediums. I work with a variety of subjects including portraits of both people and pets, as well as still life's and landscapes. I enjoy the process of bringing my client's idea of an image to life using brush strokes on a canvas or marks on a piece of paper. My work is highly realistic and very detailed, combining a love of traditional techniques with a fresh vision. I enjoy working with strong, vivid color to render an idea with intense focus and clarity while also expressing an idea imbued with poetry and passion. If I can touch the heart of others through the expression in the eyes of someone's portrait, or the play of light on a cherished object in a still life, then I feel rewarded as an artist.
