Internationally acclaimed fine artist living in Texas, USA with works owned by multiple celebrities and worldwide corporations such as Microsoft, FedEx, BMW, Porsche and Ferrari to name a handful. Thirty-four years full-time artist after leaving the architecture profession behind.

Paintings have sold for $50,000 USD, four times for $40,000 and many times for $10,000 and up.

Although known for depicting motion and emotion in various racing paintings, other areas of interest are motorcycles, vintage cars, skiing, sailing, flying, cycling, tennis, football, hockey, soccer, wrestling, boxing, soccer, baseball, equestrian riding, western themes, dancing. Then, on the quieter side, weddings, landscapes and abstracts. Paintings are often recognizable by the array of colors combined.
Medium: predominantly acrylic on canvas
Virtually all of my prints are gicleés on paper, each one is hand signed and numbered. The paper is a smooth archival 100% cotton rag. All of my current images are printed on 28”x 22”, 24”x 20” or 24”x 18” sheets. I typically allow 1.5”-3” of white paper around the image to allow it to be framed without a mat.
I strongly suggest that you not remove the print from the tube until you are ready to put in a frame. My sizes are selected so that you can buy an inexpensive ready to hang frame. For about $20 plus the cost of the frame, Michael’s, for example, will clean the glass, mount appropriately with an acid free back and seal it in the frame, ready to hang. I highly recommend this.
