History, like love, is so apt to surround her heroes
with an atmosphere of imaginary brightness”
— J.F. Cooper

My first love was art. Or was it history?! I really can't recall, but at this point the one love informs the other love in almost everything that I do – as you can clearly see from the work on my website. Most of the paintings and illustrations here are commissioned pieces for publishers and museums. If you like the artwork (and I hope you do!), most of the pieces are available as limited edition collector's prints (see the “Print Store” below). And if you really like the work, many of the original oil paintings are available for purchase. Lastly, as with all businesses these days, I invite you to follow me on Facebook and on my blog.

Thanks for your interest!
