An emotional connection between myself and the model is always key in my work, it is the foundations in which I build the layers of paint. I try see beyond the surface to reveal the soul beneath. This ability is not always based on knowledge of the model or even familiarity, it is the ability to observe, sometimes listen and to understand what I perceive.
