ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
My work captures the rich character and personality of life. I can best describe my style as light, bright, and fun. I look for the individual personality that makes my portraits unique. I paint using a combination of photographs and live models to capture the essence of my subject. I paint mainly with oil on canvas. Painting is my passion and my challenge, which I strive to communicate to the observer. Ir was raised in Southeastern Pennsylvania, near Chadds Ford.
