The painted portrait has long been a tradition of love, honor and respect. It is not a photograph, nor is it produced by a machine; rather, it is unique piece of original art, rendered by the artists' hand.

The portraits in this book primarily represent commissions I have completed in recent years, yet also include a number of samples as well as portraits I've painted sheerly for my own pleasure.
