I'm a self-taught artist who found my niche drawing portraits. I have always been fascinated with faces and I love drawing portraits of people and animals. My preferred medium is graphite (black/white) and colored pencils and I pride myself on the detail I capture in every portrait.

I have been creating custom portraits professionally for over 30 years. I donate my services annually for several of my favorite charities including the creation of custom Christmas cards for the Tomorrow's Teacher foundation to raise scholarship money that will benefit students in their quest to become teachers.

Raised in Columbia, Missouri, I currently reside with my family in Kansas City.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the samples of my work and I look forward to creating a portrait your family will treasure for generations to come.
