representational painter living in Arizona who works mostly in oils. I love to
paint people and have been painting scores of portraits and other figurative
works over the past couple of decades. It's a great honor to be commissioned to
paint another human being and help preserve his or her memory. Like all
portrait painters, I also hope to create a meaningful work of art that will be
valued and can stand on its own as an interesting, good painting long after
both the subject and the artist have passed away.
recently I've been painting still life, landscapes and more personal and
allegorical figurative paintings. Artistically, this is a very exciting time
Trekell sable brushes for many years and I really appreciate their high quality
and longevity. I recently purchased several of the William Whitaker Signature
Series brushes and I'm impressed by their strength and ability to maintain a
point. Precision is important when I'm painting commissioned portraits and I
need to place a stroke exactly in the right spot. It's great to know that I
have brushes in my arsenal that can do this.
