I have loved art since my childhood and started drawing at the age of three, but my life journey took me toward medicine. I returned to art in later life.

Many of my patients have been through very difficult times and have displayed great strength and dignity. Through their portraits I want to honor their personality traits, spirit and strength. The title of each portrait reflects those individual characteristics.

“Power” features a woman who runs marathons and “Subtle Strength” says it all. A woman who has battled cancer for over twenty years is the subject of my portrait “Perseverance.”  In “Confidence,” the subject’s demeanor is clear by the painting.

For the portraits, I took photos in my office or in an environment they preferred. We chose their favorite outfit since the portrait is permanent. I typically snap 60-100 photos in rapid sequence to find an expression that is not too posed and also reflects a trait of their personality.

During the painting process I try to capture their likeness in a photorealistic manner. I take my time—I am never rushed—I want my portraits to reflect my love and respect for the people with whom I share a very important journey.
