As a visual artist specializing in oil painting and commissioned paintings, I have tried to present a view into my studio. This gallery represents my passion for art and shows the vision and style of my work. It is my hope that the viewer will appreciate my perception of art and the subjects that I create. Come and join me in a tour of my studio and, hopefully, enjoy the beauty that I strive for by producing art that comes from my inner passion. The Gallery is divided into various images, each designed to give the viewer a cross section of my art work.

It is my hope that you will find an image that you will be proud to hang and will provide pleasure for many years to come.
