Artist statement

I strive to capture the essence and beauty of people through portraiture and find painting with oils using the classical techniques I learned in Florence are the best way to achieve the delicate result I aim for. I then try to echo the personality of the portrait through the backgrounds, applying contemporary painting techniques, usually consisting of contrasting colours, textures and images using acrylic, spray paint, collage, pastels and ink. I hope for each painting to capture a particular feeling. One which the viewer can engage and empathize with.
