Henry David Thoreau wrote: “Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”
Through my work, I ask the viewer for empathy toward the subject. The invitation to look closer is key to a successful portrait. This can be done with expression, body language, composition, and lighting, among other things. A closer look creates empathy, and empathy brings people together.
Do you have portraits of yourself that you love? Portraits with the people you love? My purpose as an artist is to create that for you. I believe that every single person is beautiful, and I want to show you.
