Portrait painter living in Austin, Tx. I came here to go to school, but I stayed for the tacos. I paint people often, but sometimes I also paint honey bees. I'm really into details.
I enjoy creating surrealist, heavy on the realist, portraits with a lot of symbolism, but a large part of learning to paint humans is straightforward figure work.
12 X 12 in Self Portrait. The original concept involved something entirely different in the throat, but I'll get to it soon.
18 x 24 in, Oil on Panel. I made this painting of Rachel because she really is a pirate.
20 x 30'' oil on canvas. $2,100 This piece was inspired by the sitter and the gorgeous head dress she created. Life is very choose your own adventure, and we tend to forget it often.
16 X 20'' $800 I was painting a lot of bees and a lot of Venus Fly Traps. I started to wonder what would happen in this what if.
8 x8'', oil on panel $400 I started a series of honey bee portraits in 2014. I'm still going, with 12 behind me. Melina is a sweet one.
