My interest in portraits began with oils, and has since been translated into many other mediums, including pastel, mixed media, acrylics, and printmaking. The human form and face create a spiritual connection between the blank canvas or paper and the subject. Starting with a quick sketch or line, the person emerges from the emptiness to fill the painting with energy and spirit. This is always an exciting and religious artistic connection that is unique to portraiture.
