Nothing gives me more pleasure than painting a portrait.
A beautifully painted portrait speaks so much more eloquently than the best photograph. The marks of the artist’s hand are visible and preserved in the painted surface. They expressively record the play of light and shadow, and capture a combination of moments and expressions that breathe life into a character.
I am available for portrait commissions across Canada and internationally. I am avaialble for private and corporate commissions.
My process involves an exploration of the subject of the portrait, including personal discussion and negotiation, leading to the first sitting. At the first sitting I will take some reference photos, and complete a sketch. From there, I will use the combination of oil sketch and photographs to compose a final oil painting.
A second or third sitting will typically complete the painting…
