I have dabbled in many forms of visual expression, from computer graphics and illustration, to art direction for TV and print advertising, but portrait painting is where my heart is. I have honed my painting techniques at the School of Visual Arts and the legendary Art Students League of New York, incorporating the methods of the masters into my own style, which is notable for its expressive brushwork. I paint exclusively with oils, and my paintings have a rich, painterly look that is reminiscent of these early painters, yet they convey a distinctly contemporary feel.
I enjoy the collaborative process and will work with you to ensure that I capture not only the likeness, but the spirit of the subject. Although I can work from pictures that you already have, I prefer to schedule a photo shoot with the subject. After the shoot I will present you with selects, and once we decide on one, I start painting. All portraits are rendered using the finest quality oils on stretched canvas. The methods I employ ensure that your heirloom-quality portrait will stand the test of time.
