Fine portraits in oil
About the Artist
Though I enjoy painting a variety of subjects, my real interest is in portraits. I try my best to capture a personality and not just a resemblance. I do not want to make my paintings look like photos, because a camera captures everything, including imperfections and momentary flashes. My job is to create a tribute and to help people look their best. I have had the privilege of studying under acclaimed portrait artist, Brian Neher, and my paintings are better because of his influence.
