My projects...

  embrace a broad scope to the work, and no two commissions are the same. I employ old world techniques in their execution, and I strive to use each project as a broadening experience, whether it involves portraiture, historical painting, restoration, landscape, or finish. I enjoy the research aspect of my projects as much as their execution, and the diverse requests made by my patrons allow me limitless opportunities for creativity and resourcefulness.
