Mary Ruggeri

My portraits are stylised and simplistic.   I try to capture the essence of the person rather than produce a rigid like for like image.   This results in some features being slightly exaggerated and some being toned down.    In either way, the person is always recognisable and complete.      I prefer to paint children because they have faces unencumbered by the rigors of time and life experience.  Childhood is a magical and mysterious age and should be constantly celebrated as a way of redeeming our own memories of that distant and timeless past
