I am a freelance portrait artist. I have a B.A. in visual art and design. I teach beginning art classes from time to time and I have been an artist for hire since 1975. My client list includes well-known celebrities and politicians. I am married and we have six children, eight grandchildren, and one great granddaughter. I also have a Master's degree in Theology and I like to paint Christian art. DaVinci is one of my idols.
