I am a total romantic. My painting style is classified as 'Romantic Realism', which is realism through the subjective emotions of the artist and is the leitmotif of the romantic spirit. I love to paint people. No other subject captures my attention more than the human face. Although it can be most challenging, especially when painting from life, it is the most rewarding. I love it when I not only capture my subject's features but their spirit as well. I hope others sense the same joy I feel creating these pieces as they do when they look at my work.
