My cat knows what he looks like to the point that it’s mundane for him to look in the mirror, but you can still find cute videos of pets reacting to their reflection all over the internet. Most of the time we feel the same about ours, but still there always feels like a distance between you and the “me” in the mirror. A portrait is an opportunity for you to see and present yourself the way you were observed, a tactile and emotional process that mirrors are incapable of.
I am a trained contemporary painter of observational tradition, who loves seeing and experiencing humanity. I offer oil paintings, digital paintings and charcoal images for commission. You can contact me by email and together we can begin to shape a new representation of yourself or a loved one.
Also… I love painting animals
