Specializing in photo-realism since 1997, I've adopted an extreme penchant for detail. I work in nearly any media but prefer acrylics, watercolor, charcoal and pencil, pastel, and pen and ink. My most frequent commissions include portraits and miscellaneous illustration requests.
Most notably, I was an Adobe Photoshop instructor during my tour in the Marines from 2005-2009. I also accept commissions for photo-montages, photo restoration, and nearly any graphic design projects (flyers, posters, CD covers, etc.) My portfolio is available at...

Service Description

Most often, I'm commissioned for hand-drawn portraits as many find the highly photo-realistic painting style attractive. This is perfect for commemorating the lives of loved ones and celebrating events (e.g. weddings, anniversaries, engagements, special dates, family portraits, etc.). High resolution images are uploaded/emailed to me and I replicate them in the client's chosen media: charcoal/pencil, watercolor, acrylics, pastel, etc. The client's input is valued every step of the way, especially when dealing with book illustration requests.

In addition to the original painting, clients can choose to have giclee prints made of their final images to (ie.) give to friends and family. Prints can either be on gallery-wrapped canvas (no frames necessary--they come ready to hang!) or printed using archival inks on fine art paper.

(My specialties seem to be primarily in the photo-realism realm, as I am weaker at loose, abstract styles).
Additionally, I frequently receive commissions for various graphic design projects. As a former Adobe Photoshop Instructor during my tour in the Marines from 2005-2009, I use my skills to create state-of-the-art visual media. I have found success through my abilities to create one of a kind photo montages that capture memories in a way no photo standing alone possibly could. Many clients choose to incorporate text into their images, sometimes even in the form of newspaper clippings.
