I have been painting pictures and shooting photography for 60 years and I never cease to be amazed at the beautiful imagery I find by simply opening my eyes. Most of my oil paintings are already hanging on client's walls as I mainly do commissioned work. Please view my "Portfolio" link to see samples of my work. My favorite subjects are children and pets, but have been known to do portraits of CEOs, celebrities and summer cottages. I work in pastels, pencil, ink and water colors, but my favorite medium is oils and I often paint from my own photographs. If interested in a portrait, I can film the subject to capture them in their favorite surroundings or work from photos you supply. I am currently located in the Chicago area but am free to travel internationally to accommdate any request. Please contact me for a quote.
