I love people, their faces, specially eyes, with my art I want to capture the beauty of the person, the moment and the feelings.
I have big family with four wonderful children and my passion for making portraits came from them. I love to capture the time, the smile, the glow in their eyes and put this on the canvas or paper.

Skills and Techniques

I paint in all kind of techniques: oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, pencil drawing, charcoal sketches, soft pastels, oil pastels, blue pen...
I would like people to stop at my portraits and think about the person on the canvas, think who they are, what is their story... to create their own story....
