Professional Portrait Painter
January 2005 - Present (10 years 9 months)
Painted portraiture captures more than a likeness; it projects an image.
Through the hands of an artist, the painted subject is reflected beyond a visual standpoint.
There is mindfulness in each brush stroke of the person's soul, their emotion, inherent qualities, & unique characteristics; it's an immortalized piece of who you are.
Fine Art Instruction & Teaching
May 2012 - August 2012 (4 months) Taught children painting, color techniques, drawing, & sculpting at the Dunedin Fine Art Center.
There is nothing more beautiful than a child's imagination. It is important to nurture their enthusiasm, passion and unique creative interests.
The goal is to give their vision wings by expanding their tool kit of visual techniques and avenues of personal expression; but mostly to have fun exploring their creativity.
