Artist's Statement   “My ideal is that portraiture should be honest, thus building a liaison between viewer and sitter. The image should not only reflect life, but also personify it.”

Statement      “Every image is different and dictates how many sittings are necessary, however, 3-6 sittings of around 1-3 hours are usually sufficient. I arrange an initial meeting with the sitter where composition, setting and the overall feel of the image will be discussed so that all parties are aware of will be expected to create the finished piece. After this, subsequent meetings will be the actual sittings for the work. I leave framing to the discretion of the sitter, although I am happy to offer advice on the matter.”
