Stairwell IV
8 by 8 inches, acrylic on stretched canvas. In the collection of the artist. 

The latest in a personal series I've been working on over the last few years; this one featuring an American Tree Sparrow. 
Cockatoo I
9.5 by 15"
Watercolor on illustration board
Original for sale!

Been itching to experiment with watercolor technique again and this was the happy result. Possibly the first in a short series...but my list of art-to-do this year only keeps growing so we'll see when the next two actually show up.
14.5 by 19.5 inches
Colored Pencil on Mi-Teintes Matte Board
Original for sale!

The fifth in my peafowl series, and the first male. This piece took a very long time; partly because it was complicated, and partly because we moved halfway-through and I had my studio packed away for a few months! I'm very glad its finished and happy with the results. 
Fresh Faced
10 by 7 inches
Watercolor on 140lb cold press
Original for sale!

A quick little piece I did while I was demonstrating at a local gallery. Warbling vireos are the only ones I see with any regularity, even if they are the plainest looking of the bunch.
Haven't updated this in some time so just in case anyone is interested:

Many of my original paintings are for sale. I use only archival materials in my artwork and framing materials: they are made to last! Costs are listed on my gallery, as well as whether or not the piece in question is framed. If desired, I will frame unframed works, but this will add to the shipping fee and is not recommended. I will ship anywhere in the world: shipping will be determined once I receive a mailing address. You will be charged actual shipping costs; I don’t make any money off it! For more inquiries, don’t hesitate to contact me!


You may choose your medium and support for the painting if you have a preference – it does determine my style to varying degrees. Supports for wet media are generally stretched watercolour paper, illustration board, stretched canvas, or some variety of cradled clayboard. All canvas and clayboard pieces will come unframed but ready to hang. Timeframe for commissions varies greatly, depending on whether I need to gather reference or acquire supplies. Updates and WIP shots will be available upon request.

Wildlife: Commissions start at $200 for an ink or graphite piece; watercolours, acrylics, and mixed-media pieces start at $400. 

Pets: Commissions start at $150 for an ink or graphite piece; watercolours, acrylics, and mixed-media start at $300. All canvas and clayboard pieces will come unframed but ready to hang. You will be responsible for providing me appropriate reference photos.

Thanks for looking!
