My inspiration truly comes from those who are in my life, my family, and from the very private world I express within myself. I especially enjoy painting and sketching faces as the main focus of my work. The expression that can be captured through another person?s eyes or mouth, whether it?s partial or whole, can reach out to the onlooker and leave a lasting image. Those faces can remind you of another person, place or time. A particular portrait can even intrigue you enough to want to meet the subject.
Some of the subjects are not necessarily an actual portrait, but an interpretation of my inner child, some fears and just what I love. I have learned to share this part of me more so to those who are part of my life, who enabled me to find the courage to share it publicly.
