"I have been painting portraits, landscapes, still-lifes and much more for over twenty years now and I absolutely love it! Truth is, I've been drawing in the margins and nearly my entire life."
"Creating something of supreme beauty, usefulness and value is my passion. Effectively painting a portrait is one of life’s most challenging endeavors—which is probably why I enjoy it so much. To begin with a blank surface and then to create a final piece of artwork that is both perfectly accurate and absolutely beautiful is an incredibly fulfilling process for me. It is equally thrilling for the portrait recipient as they become the subject and focus of an exquisite piece of original artwork that will be treasured for generations. What better way to honor and celebrate someone’s life than to create a stunning historical document and piece of fine artwork that captures and amplifies their individuality and unique essence?" - Darren Gygi
