“Portraits are a predominant part of my artistry, as I am fascinated and challenged by the changes age, experience, environment, lighting, background and just a slight muscle movement can make. It’s a thrilling journey, one I share in syncopation with the subject of my art. I forge a connection; I want to look beyond the bare likeness of a person and to interpret the inner essence and soul. The moment I find it, it resonates deeply within me”.
