THE MASTER SERIES New works of art inspired by masters from the past

I've always loved the various painting of Madonna and child, the portrait lives again and again throughout the history of the world. These brought to my attention to the classic, iconic imagery that was stamped into my head during my college school education.

When I needed inspiration, I would return to these classic paintings and hurl myself back in time. With this thought in mind, I began creating works that withstood my own ideas about time and place. These images are merely moments, created with a specific purpose: freezing time within a single frame. Creating a work of art that will stand the test of time. 

The Masters Series

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been inspired by the rich enduring paintings crafted during the Golden Era of the Renaissance. The significant art created during this period has had a great influence on the portraits I longed to create. These paintings drew in the viewer with stark contrast of colors on rich textures and bold fabrics. The use of light adds drama and intensity while the story is told using symbols and subtle gestures, implying innocence or passion, virtue or grace.

With this body of work, I use light, texture, and contrast to create the familiar look of these paintings. I utilize new world techniques to complete each canvas I hopes of reflecting the same beauty and timeless touch achieved by the master painters throughout history.
