I have developed my style from a solid foundation of study at the School of Representational Art in Chicago, Illinois. The portrait process is a collaboration between myself and my client. If you live in the Chicago area, we can meet and discuss your specific desires for the work.

Considerations of lighting, background, location and expression are all taken into consideration. Many times it is not practical for a client to spend hours sitting for a portrait. For this reason I make sketches and take carefully crafted reference photographs during one of our meetings.
The process from start to finish takes approximately one month.

Your finished portrait in oil on canvas will be ready for framing. Please email for pricing information and to schedule a free consultation.
