Portraits

My approach to painting derives from a great appreciation for the sensuous nature of the medium and an understanding of the communicative possibilities inherent in its many manifestations. As a representational painter it is my intention to manifest an underlying content that resonates with my audience rather than an exact mimesis of my subject. My portrait paintings allude a psychological resonance derived from a process of familiarization.
