I have always had an adoration of eyes and the face. Always starting with the eyes I work my way out to the rest of the piece from that point. ..striving for a portrait that is alive and if the eyes look at you upon first glance... they will follow you across the room or even crouched in a corner. Ebony pencil, Acrylic paint, Colored ink and Swarovski crystals make up my pieces. Only once in a blue moon am I allowed to sit from beginning to end of a portrait with work and life. Each piece takes about 24-36 hours from sit down to sign.
