Over the past few years I have developed a passion for painting black and white acrylic portraits. My ability to personalize an image is what makes my paintings unique. Through the technique of combining: the image that you give me and the character traits that you assign to the person I am able to develop a piece that portrays the person not just as you SEE them but as you KNOW them.

As my paintings began to draw attention, people started requesting that I paint portraits of their family members, friends, pets etc... With much practice, I am proud to say I have mastered the technique of capturing both a subject's physical form and character traits in my paintings.
