Portrait session with Sara, Alexandria, Virginia. December, 2016.

Sara recently came by my Alexandria, Virginia studio to sit for a portrait and to discuss art, punk rock, and the “excitement” of large family events held around the holidays – some familiar territory and a dash of new subject matter to laugh over.

Portrait session with Rosa, Alexandria, Virginia. October, 2016.

Rosa, a friend of a friend (and now a friend-friend of mine), recently sat for a portrait in my Alexandria, Virginia, studio.  Rosa was admittedly anxious about the process and wasn’t sure that she would be comfortable during the session.  The result?  She knocked it out!

Portrait session with Jo, Alexandria, Virginia. September, 2016.

Jo recently stopped by my Alexandria, Virginia studio for a portrait sitting and a lengthy discussion on the merits of and universality of The Smiths.  The Smiths were an easy task to conquer – it only took moments to come to an agreement on their collective genius.  Our portrait session moved right along and, before we knew it, we were wrapped and saying “goodbye” to one another.

Portrait session with Dominic, Alexandria, Virginia. August, 2016.

Dominic, an excellent graphic designer from the DC / Baltimore area, recently dropped in on the Alexandria, Virginia studio to sit for a portrait.  Dominic was familiar with my portraiture and, after discussing collaboration over the course of a few months, sat for a series of portraits in my studio.

Portrait session with Dan, Alexandria, Virginia. June, 2016.

Dan, one of my oldest friends and professional colleagues, recently visited Alexandria, Virginia, and we had an opportunity to make a portrait that reflects his dedication to his Masonic brotherhood as well as his fantastic sense of humor.  I am not sure what Dan was expecting when I begged him to bring down some “grotto clothing” for his visit, but we had a great time knocking out a series of portraits that we both love.
