As a small child, growing up in a Northern Virginia suburb of Washington, DC, I watched in amazement as my father drew wonderfully constructed, artful faces and doodles in the margins of the newspaper as he thought about and worked on crossword puzzles. I always wanted to be able to capture faces as he did.
Many years later, I continue to love portraiture and the human figure. I also enjoy a diverse selection of subjects and media. I draw and paint from a home studio and at any time, I could be working on a commissioned portrait, a quick pen sketch with a watercolor wash, or a plein air landscape. I love each of them and all of them. Working on different subjects keeps me fresh.
I work in oil and water media and all kinds of drawing media, depending on what I am doing.
I think my Dad would be proud of me and how far I have taken his “faces”.
