Artist's statement:

"I wish to paint evocative portraits that capture the personality of the sitter as well as some of the more elusive qualities that make the subject individual.  Through a subtle observation of character I try to discover fresh insights into the particular personality.  I find the landscape of the face endlessly intriguing and rather than merely illustrating the face before me, I would like to reveal something that cannot be described, to find some inner quality that speaks of the essence of the subject."
