Portraits are my passion. I learned in adolescence that the moment when the eyes and mouth take on the subject's true expression - that's Magic. My creations came alive to me then and now. They became my friends and my support team. Soon my portraits became company for other people too: I've depicted departed loved ones to give solace to grieving families and I've sketched baby photos to capture the chubby cheeks of a toddler now grown. This is my goal, to create a lasting image of the personalities we love best. I want to remind people that Love is never gone.
