The Artists' Atelier


Oil on Canvas


Graphite on Bristol Paper


I paint portraits in oil in the classical realism tradition, as well as creating portraits in charcoal and graphite on Bristol paper. I work with the sitter to achieve a motif, gesture and expression that brings the portrait to life and creates an impression of lasting value. I strive for a work that reveals the personality, character and spirit of the subject. A painting can last hundreds of years. The goal is a work of art that is a treasured possession. I have been painting portraits over 25 years and am a member of the Portrait Society of America and American Society of Marine Artists.
