Bio/Artist Statement

I am Catholic; I paint faces of religious people from all over the world without making distinctions of culture, ethnicity or education. For a portraitist mysticism is the gathering of all mankind behind painted faces–emotion brought by any human face–being the most direct and most genuine proof of the importance of any life, any identity and any soul. As a Catholic I see beauty in every human visage–particularly society's neglected minorities, homeless, marginalized and trivialized as the most beautiful of God's creations, in whom Christ lives; my street portraiture aims always to show their dignity embodying compassion as a testament to God's equal love for all human beings.www.flickr.com/photos/c215/show/
