Welcome To My Online Studio

THERE IS NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN FRONT OF US TO ENJOY EACH AND EVERY DAY. GOD’S CREATION, MY INSPIRATION. He put the Art in my HeArt!

Welcome to my website. I am excited to share with you the images that I have captured in my paintings. I hope you enjoy browsing through my site, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Through The Artist's Eye

I often sketch, paint, and/or photograph the great outdoors first to capture the colors and setting, then move indoors to refine the painting. My goal is to have the viewer’s eyes flow comfortably through my work, and to draw them into the painting. I want you to feel as if you have visited the place I’m painting.

Outdoorsman & Naturalist

Growing up in Ohio, I spent countless hours in the woods studying and drawing nature and the wildlife that was around me. Many of my paintings have been created from sketches captured while sitting in my tree stand in the woods, or walking through the fields and farmlands.

Commission Art

I welcome commissions of my artwork. Commissions are scheduled upon obtaining and reviewing all reference materials. These personalized paintings are created on a first come basis. Interested in a personalized commission work of art? Drop me a line and lets talk about your ideas and visions!

ARTIST STATEMENT

“God’s Creation – Nature is my inspiration simply because of the endless subject matter and surprises. Although I prefer to paint nature themes, I’m open to other things that may catch my eye. Throughout my career, I have explored with various themes, subjects, and mediums. As an artist I am always a work in progress, and there is always something to learn. Exploring and collecting material for paintings is a great adventure for me, and always a thrill to wonder what’s around the bend or beyond that ridge. I like to create a sense of place that is somewhere but nowhere in particular. I hope each and every viewer sees and takes something a little different from my work, and has an experience rather than just viewing a picture. My goal is not to paint life, but to paint life into my work and create an emotional connection that will inspire my viewers.”

Why Do I Paint

I paint because I’m called to.

I paint to release my emotional state.
To be visual and creative mutuality between color and passion.

I paint to transfer physicality.
To capture the sole energy of our atmosphere.
To share what life possesses.
To share what God has created.

I paint because I’m designed to.
I’m here to influence others, and to share a piece of my soul with the world.

I paint! This is who I am!
