I have always loved the human face. When I was a little girl my dad would bring home scrap paper from work and me and my sisters would draw on the blank side. My goal was to be able to draw a face that didn’t look like a monster! It took a long time, but I finally did it and eventually I taught myself to paint portraits in oil. Standing in front of a canvas in my studio, breathing in the scent of the paints and the turpentine, is when I felt most like myself.

This is a portrait of Erin. She is a young woman now, a student at MSU and she is still just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside.
