I create portraits because people are the creatures I interact with. I find their ever-changing expressions and emotions fascinating. As a living portrait I am naturally drawn to portraiture. My aim is to portray character through suggestion – an essence that shines, creating a deeper interaction with the subject. Generally I liked to focus on the face though I am finding myself increasingly interested in more figurative, and narrative elements.
