I take a great deal of care in the way that I interpret the images entrusted to me, and with each piece strive to create a vibrant work of art that not only delivers a credible likeness, but perhaps reveals some aspect of the essential nature of the subjects.
"The painting was absolutely amazing! You truly captured the personalities of both kids, one being somewhat shy and the other more bold. It's so lifelife and the colors so rich it's almost as if we were back with them at the beach. Thanks for everything - we're truly delighted." -Leslie Keller and Ray Kowantz, Scottsdale, Arizona
"We just got chills when we saw the proof. We had a hard time going to sleep [when the original arrived] - we just wanted to look at it. If you ever need a reference you’ve got it." -Becky Bontreger, Middlebury, Indiana
"You really captured everyone . . .you’re so talented. If the original is as good as I think it’s going to be, I’ll have another commission for you."
-Pamela Hewitt, Chicago, Illinois
"I knew it was a success when the women [portrayed in the painting] loved it."
-John Krsul, Sawyer, Michigan
