Realistic portraits are my passion. Ever since I can remember I enjoyed the challenge of capturing a likeness. Likeness to me includes the character of the subject. I strive to capture the person, not just the appearance. To me portraits are the most satisfying category of art. It is always rewarding to see the joy of the subjects when they see their portrait.
The following portraits were done in oil on canvas. Click on “play” for a slide show. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, please contact me for price and procedure (Prices start at $4900 for head and shoulders). I work from both photo as well as life. Your satisfaction is guaranteed – if you don’t like the portrait, just return it and I will refund the price of the portrait. Since I use time honored layered technique with oil paints, please note that it could take 8 to 12 weeks to complete a portrait.
Pencil portraits start at $250. You can view my pencil portraits here.
