Portraiture through historic events that occur in the subjects life have become the focus of my work. The medium is varied. As traditional painters use studies to help bring them closer to a final product. So do I, more with the intent of isolating an event in the subjects life. Whether pleasant or not I strive to depict these events through paint, documents and found objects. Life's events shape our beings. They are my pallet with regard to all my portraiture. While a subject in the past may infer their family or their own interests in their representations I hope to display as much of their life as possible through my chosen mediums.
These works are paintings. It is my hope that are perceived as such.
