When painting portraits, I paint almost exclusively from observation and choose the people within my world. People I know, love and care about. I consider the experience between painter and sitter vital to my artistic journey, and as a means to understanding, creating and documenting my own narrative.

This body of work was created from January 2020 through August 2020 for the exhibit BEING HUMAN, showing currently at Martha Spak Gallery at The Wharf, Washington DC. The exhibit runs from September 3rd through October 3rd.
