I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember! I sold my first painting at the age of 17. After a grand total of 12 years in art education, holding a BFA and a MFA, I have always taken art as the central focus in my life. Painting for a living is a dream come true, and one for which I am immensely grateful. I've done a lot of portraits for customers celebrating their valuables in life. A portrait is a such a wonderful keepsake to treasure for a lifetime. And I always feel so happy to see that I can make people happy! While specializing in custom portrait painting, I have a profound love for still-life painting. Guided by a special perspective to light, shadow, color and form, I paint common objects in everyday life. Inspired by Renaissance masters and the seventeenth-century Dutch masters, I apply my realistic skill in creating still-life of purity, serenity, rationality and harmony.
