commission examples

Working on commission is a natural offshoot of my illustration background.  It allows for the perfect blending of illustrative detail with painterly style.  I enjoy the challenges of collaboration and the enrichment I get from encounters with clients and subjects.  Telling the story of a special friend in paint is an approach to portraiture that I particularly enjoy.  Creating something tangible out of a memory, capturing not just the image, but the essence of a subject is extremely rewarding.
