About Scarlet

I seek the truth and stories behind things: the fleeting expressions, the colors and the light. I want to capture more than the exact image of a person. I want people to see reflections of themselves, but also to see the individuality of the sitter. To that end, I use mixed media to focus personality in each portrait. My media include spray paint, pastel, Chinese watercolors, ink, collage, bichromate photography, traditional watercolors and oil paint.

“I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the subject grow to look like his portrait.”

— Salvador Dali
