I paint portraits to depict a person's inner wisdom. I am inspired by the isolated moment, the look before an emotional turn, and signs of hard won experience. I sometimes use religious iconography to show the gift in the gaze. I often use Old Master's techniques of colored glazes to create a depth of skin tone, warmth and otherworldliness.
