My Bio

I was apprenticed to an old German Master for 4.5 years - who tortured me and ripped up my "masterpieces" until I did them to his liking ... but he made sure that I "got over" myself!  I also had to clean his brushes along with my own; learn, learn and re-learn things I was convinced I knew, and pretty much lick his boots (so to speak!).  Painting is a wonderful passion, and I would do it even if I was not paid for it!  Fortunately I am.  How much better could life get?  Art is good. Life is good. 

Lately I have been doing some private commissions. I am not always allowed to post them publically, so please be patient for the ones I can!

  • President Barack Obama Portrait

    Hi Fellow Artists - below is the link to my latest commission - it is of President Obama, and is now hanging in the Denver State Capitol Building, Rotunda Gallery of Presidents. It was all very exciting and quite nerve-racking at the same time, but a great experience.!   The press release is also viewable through my website,
