As a portrait artist, my goal is to capture inspiration and passion within each portrait. I get inspiration from the visual images of life, music, art, and entertainment. I feel moved to draw people who excel at what they do - mavericks, trailblazers, and those who inspire others. I am also inspired to draw people, places, and things I find intriguing.
I make it a point to personally meet and present portraits to my clients when possible. When taking on a commissioned portrait, my goal is to transform their ideas and vision into a unique piece of art they will cherish for a lifetime.
My Inspiration and Passion
My artistic process is driven by my inspiration and passion. When I draw, my mind goes into a peaceful place where I often listen to music and creativity takes over. My mediums of choice are color pencil and graphite pencil on paper. My clients provide photographs along with stories, poems, songs, or quotes as inspiration.
I take my time creating each portrait with special care drawing in layers in order to achieve a high level of detail and vibrancy with highlights and shadows. My color pencil and Swarovski crystal portraits are an artistic collaboration with my wife and business partner Katrina Johnson. Together, we plan the layout for the color pencil art and Swarovski crystal designs.
As a self-taught artist, art for me until 2014 was a hobby. I never imagined that I would create art that would stir emotion within and bring pleasure. The best compliments are when someone tells me one of my portraits captured the essence, brought back a fond memory, or brought tears to their eyes.
