As an artist, I mainly focus on figurative art & live portraiture, contemplating and uncovering internal beauty in every human element. Working with oils on colored canvases, I create a "window" within a painting, similar to what we see in a fogged mirror: a path that leads the eye into someone else'e world - pure & unspoiled, sometimes emotional & complex, with crystal clear colors.

        My models don't pose - they exist in "momento". This is especially challenging in children's portraiture. One moment they are open to you, the next - closed like butterfly wings, fragile, beautiful, ever-changing, but solid.  To find the right key, to capture them in "momento" without saccharine sweetness, but true, wise and pure - this is a goal & reward of my career.
