As an artist, painting a portrait is an intuitive collaboration between myself and the sitter. Through observation and conversation, I strive to capture the unique essence of the person on the canvas.

The sitter’s input influences the choice of title, placement, posture, vibrancy, contrast, colours, mood, surrounds, patterns and how the painting is executed. My intention is to create a work that truly represents the sitter’s personality, character, and sensitivities beyond the likeness.
