Telephone Still Life
Telephone Still Life

I found this old-fashioned telephone is the home of an elderly couple in India. The whole picture seemed as if it were a moment trapped in time, so I wanted to try and capture it again. 16x20 2014

Life in Munnar: Portrait of a Peanut
Life in Munnar: Portrait of a Peanut

In addition to the vast tea plantation, Munnar, Kerala is home to many people, each with their own individual story, living in the beauty of these south Indian mountains. I witnessed this elderly man make the steep trek to his stand to sell peanuts. Oil on Panel. 18x24. 2014.

LOST Portrait: Benjamin is Upset
LOST Portrait: Benjamin is Upset

Oil on Canvas. 11 x 14. 2011. Grief is far more than an emotion suffered by the mind and heart; it is a place. It is a cage whose bars of painful loss and tormenting regret form an inescapable prison. This oil on canvas portrait captures the exact moment that Benjamin Linus, as portrayed by Michael Emerson, finds himself in such a place.

LOST Portrait: Katherine Frightened
LOST Portrait: Katherine Frightened

Oil on Canvas. 11x14. 2011. It is a frightening thing to delve into the unknown. But to be thrust into it, to be severed from the comforting ties of normality, and to be alone in the void outside of the frame of your understanding rips through the body with a visceral fear, as articulated by Evangeline Lilly, as Kate Austen, in LOST.

LOST Portrait: Johnny in Love
LOST Portrait: Johnny in Love

Oil on Canvas. 11 x 14. 2011. The subjectivity of beauty, a thusly intimate thing, leaves the beholder at the complete mercy of his perception. It is not received with a mere smile or tear, but with the often unrecognizable expression of awe, as depicted in this oil on canvas portrait of Terry O'Quinn as John Locke in LOST.
