On the surface, my task is to create a painterly description of an individual, delineating contours, distinguishing details, discovering the tone and feel of a complexion and finding the light. My deeper endeavor is to evoke insight into and empathy with the subject, to intuit and capture the essence of a character and charge it with life while preserving likeness.

A portrait should be a place where aesthetic rendering provides a glimpse into the psyche, where the surface and the soul are fused and revealed.
