At the bottom of this page you will glimpse a sample of my range of portraiture. I have been recognized for my use of rich colors, dramatic lighting, and attention to detail in portrait commissions. My love for the traditional, realistic methods of the old masters can be seen in the faces of the people and pets I have painted. You will also see portraits done in a more colorful impressionist style. As well as paintings, you will find life-size bronze sculptures commissioned by the Television Academy for their Hall of Fame. I have been commissioned by corporations to honor their leaders and by private individuals to adorn their homes with likenesses of loved ones.

When I create a portrait, my goal is not just to paint a representation of a person, but also to create a piece of fine art in which the person is the main focus. Please contact me with any questions you have about commissioning a portrait.
