Artist for Hire

I was honored to do a commission piece for my dear friend, Sara.  She wanted a birthday present for her dad.  I said sure, thinking it would be a little pastel that would take me a couple of hours. She sent me this beautiful picture she had taken of her dad a few years ago; […]

My Son is not a Sociopath… Right?

Someone please tell me your kid went through a similar phase. The first time Sir had a tantrum I felt like I was watching the exorcist. I was simultaneously frightened and highly amused.

Here is a Gift, Now Go Hang it Someplace

In an effort to fully embrace my new Mission Statement, I took on my first large creative project.  My cousin Tyler’s 30th birthday was coming up and although we don’t have the same taste in art, I decided to do my best to make him something that he can hang on his wall… even if […]
