I've built this site to show you samples of my work.  I am looking for commissions to do portraits of people, birds, and animals.

Would you like a portrait created of yourself, your loved ones, or your animal companions?  Do you have a spirit animal you would like to be depicted with? 


Send me a note!  Check out my work, and tell me who your favorite animals are, why you love them, and how you would like to be painted.
