Fine portraiture is a sacred tool for me since it reflects and honor the subject in deeper ways. Every portrait that I have painted has generated strong emotional responses. In their testimonials, people speak of how looking at themselves,their children,or family members in their portraits has empowered them and made them feel more beautiful.
