"Painting is easy for those that do not know how, but very difficult for those that do!" ~ Edgar Degas
In my portraits I focus on capturing the essence and
the emotions of the individual. I am influenced by the paintings of Diego
Velazquez, William Bouguereau, Rembrandt, John Singer Sargent, French Impressionists
Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot and American Impressionist Mary
Cassatt. I've also been influenced by drawings of P.C. Helleu, James
Whistler, J.J. Tissot.
My goal is to capture unique personalities and lifelike scenes of everyday life in my artwork.
"There is no must in art because art is free." ~ Wassily Kandinsky
