Currently for sale are:

My lampwork or flamework glass beads, made from soft glass rods that are carefully wrapped and molded on steel mandrels after being melted in a super hot oxygen and propane flame. All my beads are individually made so each is unique and different from any others, even if I use the same design. I develop my own designs, mixing glass stringers to my color needs, and making my own murrini and twisties. They are properly annealed, cleaned, and turned into pendants or earrings with sterling silver findings, glass beads, or genuine pearls.

My beautiful custom oil portraits for those who desire a timeless heirloom for their family. My unframed, 3 dimensional canvasses work perfectly in the contemporary, informal home. I work from photographs provided by the client or taken from an arranged photo session, with the final art completed in my studio, using the finest museum quality oils on Belgian linen canvas.

My original oil sketches are now listed. Working from photographs and other sources, I draw the sketches in graphite pencil on 100% rag and acid free paper and then painted over it with thinned oil paints. Finished when dry with Kamar Varnish and mounted and matted with acid free boards, they have a wonderful freshness and color. Classic, comfortable, and ready to frame and hang in your home.

So enjoy your browsing, and I hope you’ll add me to your favorites. If you have any questions please convo me and I’ll do my best to answer them. I ship internationally! Please see my shop policies.
