The artist has completed many portrait commissions, male and female, self portraits, family portraits, plus a number of fashion model portraits, even nude portraits commissioned to preserve a still youthful appearance. Usually such orders require 8 weeks and involve at least three live sittings with the artist drawing out the different facets and individuality of the subject, spending contemplative discussion time to explore both the painting and the sitter during the creation of the painting. The final work is not available for viewing until completion.
