About

While I like to offer some of my own unique designs, I am also concerned with historical accuracy and enjoy replicating pieces seen in period portraits, and sometimes films as well. Over the course of the last 7 years, I have had the opportunity to work with great clients, many of whom you'll see on my website's Client Testimonial page. My work has appeared on countless Renaissance faire kings, queens, nobles, and patrons alike. My pieces have been displayed in the pages of Renaissance Magazine, at Costuming Symposiums and Sci-fi Conventions worldwide, and on elaborately-dressed New Orleans Mardi Gras crewe royalty. In 2007, I worked with Showtime Network in conjunction with the Style Channel on a project to promote their "The Tudors" series. In 2008, I had the pleasure of working with The Lost Colony of Roanoake's costuming department in replenishing their costume wardrobe after the fire that devastated their storehouses. During the…

In 2008, I had the pleasure of working with The Lost Colony of Roanoake's costuming department in replenishing their costume wardrobe after the fire that devastated their storehouses. During the same year, my work also appeared in Universal Studios/Spyglass Entertainment's motion feature film, "Wanted", starring Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, and James McAvoy. In spring of 2009, my work will be seen in "Angels and Demons", a prequel to "The DaVinci Code", starring Tom Hanks.

Other wonderful high-profile clients include Ray Irving (England's Royally-appointed Official King Henry VIII Impersonator), many NYC-based advertising agencies, and several professional and collegiate theatrical departments. Wedding parties, history teachers, madrigal singers, photographers, beauty pageant contestants, and reenactors from all eras...I've worked with them, as well. I've even done a bit of consulting for the Chicago Muesuem of Art. And, of course, I have many clients who return to me annually, sometime checking in during the off-season just to say hello. Every day is a new adventure for me, and I can't imagine doing anything more fun or rewarding as a way of making a living!

I am always open to trying my hand at creating something new, so if you have a sketch or portrait that you would like to have replicated, please feel free to contact me with your needs - I love a good challenge! :)
