Knew I was to be an artist all my life. Serving as a Desert Storm War Veteran earned a G.I.Bill scholarship. Chose Southern Illinois university for a Bachelor's in Fine arts class of 2000 (excellent fine art program) 15 year career as a picture framer and now I am "Steppin Out" as they say. I work exclusively in oil on canvas specializing in heirloom portraiture. Currently building a portfolio and so my prices are quite minimal. Come grow with me!
