Good questions:

Where can I buy your artwork?

You can buy it directly from me.

Contact me through my “contact” page, or the form below.


I take credit cards, I ship UPS.

 And I offer a 30 day money-back guarantee!

Are you showing with a gallery?

Not at this time.

How can I see your newest artwork?

As new things happen – including new art, I post them to my social network: – Here, I blog about things directly related to my artwork. – Arts related: News-Events-Friends. – A place to collect Eye-Candy! – Behind-the-Scenes snapshots.

Is it easy to ship this artwork?

For you? – Very easy.

For me? – well, I have to build a crate – but that’s easy!

Shipping price depends on the size, weight, and distance.

I prefer UPS.

Do you take commissions?

Generally, no.

I’ve taken a lot of commissions over the years,

but right now, I’m just following the muse where she takes me.

Why do you paint on shaped canvases?

Rectangles are nice – they don’t distract from the painting.

But how can you look at that shape and not want to mess with it?

I shape them to evoke specific feelings.

The points, the curves, the splinters, all move me in different ways.

You know what else?  –  When I paint, it feels like I’m actually making the object – I want it right there in the room with me.

Taking away the rectangle helps that.

Why do you carve into them?

Because painting just isn’t enough – I have to get more physically involved.

Those carved lines are like cutting into flesh, they’re like actually participating in the movement going on.

Even when I draw, I’m very physical – you can’t believe the the amount of leads I break.

Future plans?


There’s a long ways to go with these oil paintings, I’m curious where they will take me – that’s my focus.

I also have a stack of drawings waiting to be explored through woodblock prints.

I plan to bring those two mediums – (oil painting and printmaking), into one cohesive body of work.


At some point I want to paint a series of watercolors that keep going through my head – I can almost taste them!

And then there’s a body of work in stained glass that keeps calling – we’ll see.


There’s more of course… but that’s enough for now.

Can I buy them all?

Yes, you may – (seriously).


This is a partnership – I can’t do this without you.
