Portraits appeal to me because they capture a moment in a person’s life, and offer the viewer a glimpse into that person’s true self. To me, the success of a portrait stems from the subject’s willingness to be vulnerable, and the artist’s willingness as well. It is a very intimate relationship between artist and subject, and a responsibility as well. One of the comments that has meant the most to me was that there is a tenderness in my portraits. I hope very much that this is true.
While I have taken a hiatus from doing portraits, I am always open to commissions. Lately I have found myself longing to get back to portraiture, and intend to begin a new series in the next few months. Please check back as they will appear here as they are completed!
