For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the magic of capturing a likeness and for over thirty years I have been inspired to make portraits of family, friends, models and patrons. For that reason I am especially proud and honored to be included in this exhibition.
My sincere thanks to the Society and the jurors for their recognition, to Emanuela S. for the frame, and to my two greatest supporters, my parents.
Finally, to make a compelling portrait, it helps to have a special sitter… and to her I can only say, “to the moon and back.”
