Before becoming an artist, I had an extensive career as a project manager serving various types of businesses and corporations. The beginning of my career focused heavily on beauty products, marketing, branding, product benefits, and press needs. Thereafter I moved into full-blown manufacturing which not only included the aforementioned skill-set but also working with local and overseas vendors as well as retail buyers. Eventually I landed in software platform development, web-dev, e-commerce, and database management.
And then I left it all… . To create my Muse….
Embarrassingly, I had believed that anyone who graciously visits this site would automatically know that all of the prints available for purchase here are actually beautiful high-resolution copies of my original works. I was wrong.
Therefore, I humbly submit to you images of my original works which were all created with Liquitex acrylic paint on 16” x 20” stretched canvas and framed. Currently this list is missing “Pure Imagination” as it is with a local printer. You can read about that within the next paragraph.
Each original painting is available locally, Portland Oregon to Vancouver Washington, at or around $700.00 per piece. If you are local, and interested, please feel free to send me a message via the “Contact” section of this site. If you are not local, but are interested in a 16” x 20” non-framed canvas reproduction, fear not! They are coming. I’m working with a local printer to see how close we can get to matching my originals. If they are wondrous, I’ll add them.
Now onto the images.
