Contemporary Masters

I’ve been captivated by natural forms since childhood. Paralleling the personal philosophy of Rembrandt who “loved what he painted and only painted what he loved,” a portrait painter has a duty to reveal the character of his subject – his mood, inner drama, and mystery - not merely copy a likeness. Applying similar principles to my painting practice I use light as my muse and work with glazing mediums applying upwards of twenty translucent layers to mold the forms and capture my subject’s spirit.
