For many years I have painted occassional portraits, often family members (not to mention Irish farmers and musicians), I have recently begun taking commissions, usually children, but also people of all ages.

I attempt to capture a casual moment, a quiet time, a mood with my portraits.  If you are looking for a formal, carefully posed portrait, I'm probably not your man.  My paintings have simple compositions with strong directional lighting. I paint in oils on canvas.

I specialize in smaller paintings like "Maya Grace at Three" and "Martin Hayes" or slightly larger oval canvases such as "Caitlin at 17."  I can do larger canvases such as "After the Aire" but whatever the size of the painting I am always looking to capture an unguarded moment.

The process begins with a one-hour or longer photography session, either in your home or here in my studio in Narberth.  I compose the painting based on images from that sitting. The whole process typically takes about a month. If you are interested you can see more at my website, call me at 610-667-9647, or email me.

Prices are usually dictated by the size and complexity of the painting.  For example a small (8x10) simple painting like "Maya" would be $1500.  An 11x14 oval painting like "Caitlin" would be $2000.  Larger portraits like "Aire" would be $2500.  Pencil portraits are $600.
