In my portrait work I emphasize on the psychological elements I feel from the subject I am portraying. I wear the character of a surgeon carefully capturing the inner and placing it on the outer material with color or black ink to reveal a new hidden reflection of the persons internal psyche. Almost like a mystical reading, when the work is done one can then gaze into the portrait of themselves and see it as a dream seed for change pulling new symbolic characteristics into their real life.
All works are with sumi watercolor or ink on paper ranging from sizes 11x11inch to 20x24inch.
