Specializing in portraiture and architecturally based artwork, I enjoy rendering the essence of my subject. In regards to the human face, that means capturing that one certain expression, that twinkle in the eye that makes the man or woman who they are. Working in the media of granite has heightened my awareness of the intricacies of light and how it helps form the human face. My great interest in architecture fuels my desire to bring out the innate beauty of each house that I depict.
My role as an artist is to portray people in the context of what was important to them; family, vocation, home, dreams, etc. My client's satisfaction has always been the motivation to do absolutely the best work I can, whether the media is granite, airbrush, pencil, or pen & ink. To illustrate, and thereby celebrate a human life, is a gift that I am thankful to have been given.
