In portraiture I attempt to express
what is behind and beyond the physical features of the sitter.

I enjoy the challenge of painting/drawing portraits, commissioned or otherwise.
My aim is always to capture, not a superficial resemblance of the sitter, but that other distinguishing thing that lies behind the eyes, the bone structure underlying the features, the body's natural posture.
A painted portrait, as an image imbued with the painter's artistic sensibility and skill, expresses so much more than a photograph.
