Portrait Art has been a part of my life for almost as long as I can remember. Years of perfecting my portraits have taught me valuable lessons and have also helped me through tough times. If you are not already an artist, or if you are an artist, I ecnourage you to pick up that brush or pencil and start that masterpiece! "Much like a carpenter, his nail to hammer, ours is pencil to paper, brush to canvas. It takes time and dedication, but is so rewarding."
