About the Artist

Whether it be the uniqueness of the human face, or the spectacular colors and shapes of the animal world, I enjoy portraying the faces of life. Each person has their own smile, eye shape, and quirky balance of features, making them so unique and individual. Rendering a spot-on likeness is always my goal, and I am tenacious in attaining my subject's essence. Working from photographs gives my clients and me the freedom to work through the internet, making the process of commissioning a fine piece of original art fun and easy. I greatly enjoy the kind of art that I do!

Through the years, I have delighted in portraying the relatives of my clients, children, parents, grandparents, etc. My favorite media are Granite Etching, Pen & Ink, Airbrush, and Pencil. The granite etchings are done on 1 foot square granite tiles, which are 3/8 of an inch thick. Memorializing family members, their homes and interests are projects that I find very rewarding. I put great detail in each of my etchings, making them the finest available anywhere.

Pencil and Airbrush drawings are done on various sizes of acid-free thick paper. All of my art is original and hand crafted for each client.

Historical figures and personalities are a favorite. What artist can resist rendering a subject that he or she has always been fond of! My clients passion for their favorite subject is usually quite contagious, and I enjoy their reactions to the finished work.

  • Politics – Lincoln, JFK, RFK, and Reagan
