In my portraits, I like to go beyond simply trying to capture an accurate likeness of the subject. I try to reveal something more of the individual. People are complex and varied, and I'm fascinated by them. Just to record the external "shell" isn't enough. I want to introduce the viewers to the PERSON. The setting, pose and dress; sometimes even specific items or pets are all elements that I consider carefully for each portrait. I shun the idea of working out a technique of portraiture, and view each new subject as a fresh, new challenge with my goal being to meet the person myself and introduce that person to the viewer.
