"All my work is original, not reproduced. I do commission Portraits from life, from my own photography and from my clientsí old family photos. I also enjoy Still Life painting - Its almost a vacation for me because apples donít have faces!"


 

 

Commissioned Works ~ Archival Photos

Many people are tracing their ancestry these days. Their family photographic archives are a rich source of information, what the family home looked like in 1890, the clothes that great-grandma wore to school, grandparents on their first date, sitting on the hood of a model T. I create original oil paintings from photos like these for clients to enjoy now, and pass down through the family as heirlooms. More than just portraits, these images honor a moment in time... a special day, or just an ordinary one to which time has given greater meaning. Most of the photos that I work from are black and white, so I carefully research colors for the time period Iím painting so there are no anachronisms.   Private Live Portraits

"Painting a larger version of a small
 photograph not only increases the detail
of the image but also increases the
enjoyment of the memory."
