Star Portraits

Woo hoo! I've been given permission to reveal some details about something that I'm involved with... Star Portraits! It's a new TV show that's being produced by PTV Productions Inc. for Bravo!, and will air in the fall of 2009! It combines the art of portraiture with celebrity biography. Each episode is hosted by Louise Pitre, and three different artists paint a well-known Canadian celebrity in each one. I had the honour of painting Enrico Colantoni, an actor who has appeared in movies and television shows like Friday the 13th, Law and Order and sooo many others including the new television series, Flashpoint.
