Growing up in upstate NY, I moved to South West Missouri in 1997 with my wife Colleen and expanding family. I thoroughly enjoy the process of portraiture and find that all the instruction and abilities I have gained over the years are called upon in the execution of a piece. I have an Associates of Fine Arts degree from Munson Williams Proctor Institute located in Utica, NY.
Every portrait is approached with the utmost respect and reverence not only for the people involved, but also for the artwork that is meant to endure to future generations. Every portrait produced is pursued with the goal of the resultant work being the very best I can produce.
