About the Artist


I'm a Pittsburgh-raised, New York City-based artist with a specialty in acrylic, oil and wood paintings. I produce work ranging from abstract to realistic and fantasy landscapes. Each piece created is a one-of-a-kind original inspired by you!

Several pieces of my art are commissioned. For more information on how to obtain custom work, please visit the Commission FAQ tab.
