Visual artist from Long Beach, California, whose work has appeared in various galleries and private collections. I spend my days rendering many subjects including landscapes and cityscapes, but have a special affinity for portraiture.
This work focuses on feminine portraiture, consisting of casual acquaintances naturally posed to suit their individual auras. My process begins by wielding oil and acrylic paints, which evolves into: taking a step back, staring, shaping, revaluating, starting over, procrastinating, resuming, and eventually finishing. By balancing the dichotomy between abstract and realism, each model ultimately achieves an authentic yet caricatured portrayal.
