Portrait Art is and has always been a true passion of mine. Recently I've found it to be a powerful way to engage social connection in a world that seems to be increasingly focused online, isolated and socially, digitally distanced.
In order to make more connections, diversify my art making and challenge my skill set I am making my portrait art available for purchase through commissions.
Please Read the "Commission Outline" PDF available below for more information.
