My whimsical portraiture finds the essential spark within each subject, and I never know what it will be. Each face suggests a different journey. I've painted family members, children, friends, a woman who takes care of cats, and other artists. I sketch people in the act of thinking, recounting, hoping. If, in these portraits, people seem to be inhabiting another dimension, I feel. well, don't we all? My aim is to catch subjects telling me a story that defines them, or catches their hopes or dreams, their shining moments.
