about me

I consider myself a portraitist, whether it be a portrait of a person, dog, or other critter. I find this area of painting the most intriguing for me, and what I seem to do best. Any other features in my work are largely to serve as supporting elements to the portrait subject.

Born in St. Louis, raised in rural Missouri.

Currently living in the lower Catskills, greater New York City area.
