As an artist I offer a continually growing inventory of affordable Fine art and Photography to sell locally and on the internet. I have future plans to create a series of connected art pieces with a central theme and some metal sculpting, possibly mobiles. I am frequently occupied with commissioned work but I am still available for any special projects that require a creative vision from start to finish, so feel free to contact me anytime.
I believe all clients should get my full attention and receive a quality finished product. Punctuality is paramount, resulting in a project being finished in a reasonable and agreed upon amount of time. Custom finishing and murals should not take a long time. I take pride in being on time and frequently finish my projects early. I respect my client's space and always consider it important to be in and out quickly, as well as being able to meet deadlines.
No matter the task or job, even if it is something new, success is always expected. If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, project inquiries, etcetera, please feel free to contact me.
