Recent Painting: commissions
I enjoy working on commissions in addition to my personal work. The commissioned portrait process provides an excellent opportunity for broadening my horizons as I learn about my clients life's work and what is important to them, their colleagues, and family. My goal is to interpret the social and emotional input I receive about the person into an image which reflects those qualities.
Each project presents a set of new challenges which enrich my understanding of the painted image. I enjoy creating work for others, and I find the collaborative process of a portrait painting equally humbling and inspiring.
