I love to paint people, especially their faces. I’ve always enjoyed observing how people are put together and the things you can tell about a person from studying their features. Whether they laugh a lot, or if they smoke, or if they worry. It’s all there, written in their beautiful faces.

100 Portraits in 100 Days series

pastel portrait of a woman

No. 90, 100 Portraits in 100 Days, 6×9″ pastel on paper, $300.

In this series, I painted a portrait a day for 100 days. It was very rewarding. I learned a lot and ended up with some new friends and lovely faces.

30 Friends in 30 Days series

Nikki, 30 Friends in 30 Days, sold.

This was a Facebook project in which I asked friends on social media to help me complete 30 portraits in 30 days. I went over my allotted time by just a little bit, but it was wonderful collaborating with my Facebook followers.

Commissioned Portraits

Jim and Barb, 14×11″ pastel on paper, sold.

These are some of the portraits that I’ve done on commission. I’m always happy to help someone commemorate a life or celebrate a birthday or anniversary. Please contact me if you’re interested in a commissioned portrait of a loved one.
