THE ARTIST IN ME VALUES THE ARTIST IN YOU
Value is defined as relative worth, merit or importance;
in fine art, it is also the lightness or darkness of an image.
The values in my paintings capture soul and Spirit, the value of a person...
as the Artist in me values the Artist in you.
You are so much more than what meets the eye.
You are body, soul & spirit. You are a masterpiece, created one-of-a-kind. There is no one like you, there has never been anyone like you,
and there will never be another you.
My acrylic paintings are a hybrid of traditional portraiture, capturing the likeness of that unique person, while introducing a contemporary palette-knife technique, where I introduce bold colors that live in harmony with the painting.
The process takes time, and layers of paint, that represent the time and layers of your humanity. After I have achieved a refined likeness in the portrait, I take a risk.
What is life without risk, right?
At this point, the portrait is a fine traditional painting. I could continue with this style; it would be the safe thing to do…. but instead I take courage to be vulnerable. I set down the paintbrushes and pick up the palette knives.
