I am currently booked out about 6-8 weeks on beginning new, Custom, Commissioned Paintings for clients. This includes the CUSTOM listings which are purchased through my Etsy Shop, as well as specific commissioned requests created to meet the clients specifications or based on a sold painting that you may have seen online. Please feel free to contact me for specific completion times and to discuss the details of your requested piece.
There are many out there who attempt to duplicate my technique and style. I am often emailed and informed of art being sold online as my work, from countries such as Russia and China. This is NOT MY WORK! These are created in "art factories" without my consent. I sell online currently only on Etsy, and my site,
I am also often contacted and asked by others to please describe how I am able to achieve the overall look that I have to my paintings. My honest reply is that each artists really needs to figure out and develop their own style, if they try to copy others work, the result will often be a piece with poor composition, forced strokes, and will lack an emotional or striking quality. There are many online, and here on Etsy, who will quickly create artwork, copied from my work, and sell it for a price that "seems too good to be true" for Original Art. Many, as I said, are from countries where copyright laws are constantly infringed upon without consequence. Please remember, "if it seems to good to be true, then it probably is". You can rest assured that I take extreme pride in each painting that I create. Being a professional Artist is my livelihood, it is how I solely support myself and my children. I am blessed that I have the ability to do what I am absolutely passionate about. I am very invested in the quality of art that I release for sale to the public, or complete by commission.

***ABOUT: (also see-

I am a full-time professional artist, all of my original work is hand-painted by myself in my own studio with great attention to detail. I specialize in original, modern, textured, impasto, palette knife painting. My unique painting techniques create highly textured, contemporary, gallery-quality paintings which will beautifully enhance your home, office, or business decor. My oil paintings, acrylic paintings, and mixed-media paintings are sold and collected internationally. I sell a majority of my original paintings locally, and through custom, commissioned requests to interior designers, international collectors, corporations, and homeowners. My work can be found in private home collections, in corporate offices, restaurants, spas and hotels.

I use only the HIGHEST QUALITY PROFESSIONAL GRADE OIL AND ACRYLIC PAINTS and GALLERY canvas for each one of my original, modern paintings, EACH PAINTING IS A GALLERY QUALITY PIECE OF FINE ART. No painting is mass produced or rushed, but great attention to detail is given to each piece of fine art. Each painting is uniquely created by my hand, and is shipped direct from the artist, from my studio. All artwork is done on Museum Quality, 100% Cotton Duck, Stretched, Gallery-Wrapped Canvas. All canvases are a thick 1 1/2" deep and all edges are painted black so that your new, original painting arrives ready to hang. I sign both the front and the back of my canvases, and a signed and dated COA is included with all purchases so that you are sure you are buying a one-of-a-kind, original piece of art.

CUSTOM COMMISSIONED PAINTINGS (see SHOP NOTE)~ Most of the listings in my shop are for completed, ready to ship, paintings. I also have listings for Custom, Hand-Painted to Order pieces based on some Sold paintings, which you can purchase and work will be scheduled to begin on a similar painting to the one you see pictured in the listing. In addition to those listings, please convo me with any special requests that you may have for a specific piece that you have in mind, and for current start times based on my schedule. I work closely with my clients on design projects, corporate spaces, remodels, etc. and through clear communication, photos of your space (and fabrics, colors, styles within that space), I strive to produce custom pieces which will be a focal point to your room and bring a smile to your face.

Thank you so much for viewing my art! I hope you enjoy viewing my paintings as much as I enjoy creating them!
