I am a southern California based portrait artist who has been creating custom portraits for families since 1999. My work is in homes throughout the world, has been exhibited in galleries, has won awards and has been published in books and magazines. For many years I worked exclusively in oils until I discovered the digital painting medium, which allows for even more creativity. I merge state of the art technology with traditional oil paint and gel mediums to create paintings on canvas that not only capture a true likeness, but are works of art that have an expressive style and are beautiful to look at.


- Rates are for one figure, but discount is given for multiple figures in one painting. Other sizes are available - please ask.

- The portraits & paintings shown in my store are from previous commissions or have been painted for galleries, interior designers or stores that sell my work. They are shown as samples of my painting style and some can also be ordered as canvas prints (please inquire).
