About Me:
My subjects are people and/or scenes that I see as telling a story. They're actual recreations of what jumped out at me as a naturally great composition, and yes, I work from my own photographs. I'm always on the lookout for things that haven't already been "done to death"! My style has been compared to Hopper's, which I take as a great compliment.
I've been doing portraits for many years, and also prefer to do them from a photo, preferably taken by me whenever possible.
I sell high quality, professionally made prints of most of my work, excluding pieces that were commissioned. Many of my originals are also for sale, please contact me if you are interested!
