Introduction: I create portraits in both charcoal and oil from your photos. I can also work in acrylic if preferred , and I can illustrate cartoons in a variety of mixed media. I’ve been a painter for over 20 years, and I’m also an art instructor. I take special care to not only attain a subject’s physical likeness, but, just as importantly, I have the rare ability to express the essence of a subject’s character and essential personality. In addition to portraits of people, I have been commissioned to paint portraits of pets and of homes. Additionally, I love to custom create paintings of any theme or subject that a client may want for a home or a business. For example, a restaurant may want depictions of chefs working in a kitchen, or a country club may wish to commission paintings of golfers. Contact me for a free consultation. Talk to ya soon!
