My face paintings are not portraits. Portraits are about the sitter, my face paintings focus on the face as the subject. I have always been fascinated by facial features. The eyes, nose, mouth and skin are incredibly fascinating, so much personality in each feature. So complex, each face is a world unto itself. To me, the story is in the face; the face is the subject of my compositions, not the person wearing it. Emotions revealed in the face are ultimately what I want to capture, and correctly painting the facial features is what keeps me fascinated.


My figure paintings evolve from my face paintings. To me the body accentuates the expressions and emotions born on the face. The body brings its own challenges to the canvas and is an integral part of the overall story.
