    One of a kind mixed media origin celebrating the people who keep us safe

    This series evolved from living near Parris Island, where great Marines are made!  Since it started, though, I've added all branches of the military and first responders.  

    The main series is 6 x 6 and make great gifts.  Custom pieces are usually best in either the 10 x 10 or 12 x 12 format and can incorporate unit badges, personal photos, maps.  Each takes 10 days to 2 weeks. 

    Starting this year, we make a donation to a military org whenever these works go out.  Collectors can choose from Wounded Warrior, USO or Folds of Honor.  

    Start collecting!

    Any of the original paintings can also be reproduced on paper. Please contact me directly for size information

    I've traveled the world and lived in some incredible places.  When finally I settled down I started painting  those images.  I've been painting full time for almost 2 decades, have owned a gallery, and traveled to hundreds of juried art events throughout the country.  I am blessed to have my work on walls in homes and offices all over the world, and am represented in the permanent collections of the Cities of Raleigh (NC) and Charleston (SC). I continue to hone my craft, using new techniques and methods to better bring the images to canvas.


    A combination of acrylic, graphite and sometimes mixed media, including photos and maps. All the work has structural elements, so even the abstract paintings suggest buildings and deconstructed landscapes are geometric.  Since moving back to the Lowcountry,  colorful abstract paintings, cities, skylines and contemporary art have been joined by atmospheric work. Original art adds value to every thing around it, and it should please you, and catch your eye every time you see it. cities skylines


    When I started painting full time, I remembered the adage to writers, "write what you know." So I painted what I knew, and that was cities.  I've painted almost 100 of them now.  But I am inspired by everything I see, so I have a large body of abstracted landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, and even musical instruments.  In fact, I have painted (on) 4 actual guitars.  So, no idea you might have for a commission to fit your home is too far afield for me (except pets and people!)  The mixed media cities, in fact, are some of my favorites to create, using your favorite landmarks to inspire them. Since late last year, I have added a series called "Thank you for your service."  These paintings are small pieces which celebrate those who keep us all safe, from the military to first-responders, and have generated a number of custom pieces for very special gifts.
