Humans are traditionally the subjects of portraiture but when I read "Water for Elephants"I felt I wanted to memorialize the character "Rosie". She embodied courage, gentleness, loyalty and intelligence. I love doing portraits because they give the artist the opportunity to portray the essence of the subject as they see it. It is another way of seeing beyond a photograph image. It gives me the right to use my "personal lens". I have always loved faces even if they include a trunk.
