Artist Statement

My Mission statement - "To create Art that moves, amuses, entertains and captures a moment in time for the audience to enjoy forever"

Influences & Favorites

Norman Rockwell, Andrew Wyeth and many of the digital artists making dreams a reality today in Hollywood and the digital art publishing world.



I started drawing when I was 9 years old and started painting when I  was 13. I have shown my paintings and photography in galleries in  Richmond, Virginia and across the state of Florida from St. Augustine to Fort Lauderdale.

I work mostly in Acrylic paint but have also used Oils, enamel, watercolor, colored pencils, 35MM Photography and am learling 3D digital art as well. I have worked as a Software Engineer most of my career doing artwork as a side but with the changes in the economy have decided to shift my focus as a Technical Artist / Illustrator and Instructional Designer building online courses for students and creating digital artwork. My Passion is painting but with the digital tools available, I find that I can sit at a canvas and at the computer and feel comfortable in both environments.
