I have been an artist pretty much my entire life, and I have studied almost every known art form there is. I have always been drawn to painting, oil or acrylic, like the Old Masters....especially portraiture. About 10 years ago, I decided to concentrate on painting Sports-themed art and subjects relating to the comic, fantasy, sci-fi, and entertainment industry. Setting up as a vendor at Comic Cons in Florida is something I look forward to every year. Meeting the fans, discussing pop culture and sharing my artwork id definitely a high point in my life. I get to meet so many interesting people, as well as celebrities...and also becoming friends with many of the amazing artists in the industry. When I work on and complete a portrait, I feel it doesn't have to look exactly like a particular person, but instead, it should capture their energy and the essence of the person.
