A portrait can be as striking or as haunting as a great painting or a fine poem. Within every person a secret is hidden. It is my task to reveal it. The revelation will come in a small fraction of a second with an unconscious gesture, a gleam of the eye, or a brief lifting of the mask that all humans wear to conceal their innermost selves from the world. A great portrait communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it.
Pictures hold life's experiences
