Each piece is unique as the person it is for, or the subject it is Investigating. I take time and care in my work. hand craft my supports, canvas or panel from the bottom up. I take great pride in the quality of my work.
Even with modern innovations, oil painting is a craft of the old world. As such many hours and plans go into creating a finished piece. I endevor to meet various needs and budgets while still respecting my labors, as I believe everyone should be able to enjoy fine art.
