My Story

After many years working as a writer and marketing professional, I dropped it all and lifted a paint brush. Thus began a new life. My art starts with the idea of a "story" and builds from there. Each narrative artwork, whether a dream or an inspiration or something strange and beautiful, is built upon the concept of a classic story structure. 


Art runs in my family, but it wasn't until very late in life that I understood that it ran deep within me too. Now, bringing my concepts to life seems as natural as breathing. I work primarily in oil and pencil/charcoal and currently focus on coastal landscapes, images of summers past and present, and time worn people and places. I have lived and worked in Chicago, New York, Singapore, Los Angeles, Arizona, and Colorado. I hope you enjoy the art I am creating.


My work can be found here, on, and in private collections. Click here to explore my online Gallery.  If you like something, buy it for your own collection. I offer originals, limited edition prints, printed canvas, and fun gift items based on my artwork, and I offer some of work I've collected over the years, too. They can all be found in The Store.
