ABOUT ME

 

The face is the portal to the person and their persona. ​​ Painting an image of the face is a means to express and explore the physical and psychological characteristics that make a person unique. ​​ I paint using gouache, acrylic​​ paint, inkjet print, graphite, watercolor, colored pencil, pastel, or charcoal on paper or canvas. ​​ I use cangiante and chiaroscuro to achieve contrast between light and dark areas and the representation of solid forms.
