I'm not a professional artist. However, I am proud of the art I make, and every time my art is purchased, I feel happy knowing that someone enjoys my work enough to want to keep it. And every time I put a purchased drawing into an envelope and send it off, I feel happy because I am sharing a piece of my soul with someone who appreciates it. And that is the greatest gift an artist can receive -- knowledge that, instead of sitting in a box in my room, the art I produced is making someone else happy now.

My original artwork presented below spans several years, media, subjects, and styles.
