This site is a collection of artwork, photographs for inspiration, and possibilities.
It’s purpose is to provide information on art for sale, my approach to commissions, and a small gallery of prior work.
The process to create a commissioned painting can be based primarily on my interpretation of the chosen subject, or be collaborative for more individualized works. Commissions that actively involve creating a work of art with a customer can produce a highly unique and meaningful piece.
For example, the work could include family artifacts that you wish to be part of the scene, or simply be a favorite landscape or seascape, with hints of your time and presence there. It might be a backcountry view, with no other trace of you. Perhaps portraits of your people doing what they love, in places they love. Or place yourself back in a historical time period you have felt akin to.
The animals in our lives can tell their story through their behavior, a moment of which can be captured in a portrait. Since each animal has a unique relationship with their humans, you can inform the process so the portrait captures more of your pet’s personality.
Ideally such a painting will reflect a moment that awakens your memories and your senses – hearing the laughter of your children, or the oars against the water as a bring the boat to shore. It might be playful growls and the howl of the dogs. Or sharp points of cat claws gripping the blanket in a satisfied purr. Maybe even the cool air and wet fur when your pup dives into the water to retrieve the stick.
For me, it is a successful piece when you can look at it and again feel the joy you felt in that place, or shared with that being. This is one of the best aspects of art – it transcends time and place, and the possibilities are endless.
Please enjoy your time browsing. Perhaps you will find something that inspires your vision for a work of art to emerge from your life.
Thank you for visiting,
