I am a portraiture and mural artist in Utah County with clients from all over the United States. I love to paint children especially because they seem so full of light and life. I specialize in oil but I do murals in acrylic as well. My process usually starts on a gesso covered wood panel with a flat ground of a solid color laid down. I then start putting in loose, opaque colors until the form begins to shape itself. I tighten up my strokes in the details but keep elements of the underpainted color popping through. Finally, I seal the painting with a high quality varnish so it will last generations.
