Below you can find more information regarding the four categories I work in, commission status, pricing, as well as the contact form.
Museum Quality Portraits
Acrylic (and sometimes pencil crayon) on canvas or watercolor paper. This is the highest-quality of portraiture on offer. Each portrait is painted in glazes, creating an illusion of life and depth invisible on screen. Size measurements are in inches.

Roman Emperor Trajan (2012)
Acrylic and pencil crayon on cold-pressed watercolor paper. Created for National Geographic. Size: 9 x 12.
Other than stained glass, in my experience, no other artist’s paint is as luminous as watercolor. I use only the high-quality, artist’s materials so that (with proper care) these apparently fragile paintings can last lifetimes.
Art Nouveau Storytelling Portraits
Combining Mucha’s inspirational Art Nouveau style with symbolic storytelling, these portraits go beyond capturing an image. Each painting captures a unique memory.
This portrait is a bust, including simple background elements. Acrylic, watercolor, and ink on Borden & Riley’s Rag Drawing Paper #627. Size: 11 x 14.
Simple Background Landscape
Self-portrait created in 2008 for an art competition. Acrylic, watercolor, and ink on Borden & Riley’s Rag Drawing Paper #627. Size: 14 x 11.
If you could be anyone, other than yourself, who would you be?
