Intro and Latest News  

Welcome to my website.

If you have visited here before you will see that I, ably assisted by Webmaster, Connor Smith, and Studio Assistant, Lauren Cunningham, am in the process of updating and reorganizing the site. When finished we hope that all the data, listing, links, etc. will be updated, and that the articles that demonstrate how I paint will be more accessible in the “In Print” Section. You will notice that almost all of the paintings displayed have been sold.

I typically do not do editions of prints. However, if you see a painting and would like to have a print, I can do a “One Off” print as an Artist’s Proof. These are museum quality Giclee prints. They run between $450.00 and $750.00 depending on the size of the print. Also, if you would like to discuss my painting a similar painting for you, please send me an email at I would love to hear from you regarding questions or comments about my paintings.

All the best,
