I began painting after my first visit to The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. It was there that I first encountered Amedeo Modigliani's work and Albert Barnes' collection. I was inspired by Modigliani to work in portraiture because it was the most intimidating of processes for me---you either recognize the subject or you don't. The most demanding part of my painting a portrait is capturing a subject's gaze. I'm growing to see that challenge as the most important part of the process.
The prints sold here are created by a local shop in Edgewater, CO. The shop is run by visual artists, and their commitment to producing the best possible reproductions means they compromise nowhere: they use the best paper or canvas for the project, high definition printers, and inks of the highest quality. Each print is a work of art in its own right, and I'm fortunate to have found such a great local resource. The prints are easily framable and won't require custom work.
