I"ve been creating portraits now for more that twenty years. My motivation is capturing the persona and unquestionable resemblance of my subject. I have no idea how it happens or what the process is except to say that when I finish a session, I am shocked by how strong persona and resemblance are.
Drawing for me is healing and therapeutic. I often emerge totally revitalized, I think because I enjoy transferring a person's energy into my canvas (paper). By the time I'm done, you can almost "feel" the subject! I hope you enjoy my portraits.
