I am thrilled to offer my artistic expertise for commissions, specializing in portraits and automotive sketches. My mediums of choice span pencil, mixed media, gouache paint, oil paints, and digital rendering, each offering a unique aesthetic to bring your vision to life.

With a professional journey that commenced in 1987, I have been actively accepting commissions, nurturing a rich tradition of capturing vivid likenesses and the innate essence of subjects.

My artistic endeavors are a blend of classical and contemporary styles, ensuring each commissioned piece is not only a personal reflection but also a timeless keepsake.

Over the decades, I have worked with numerous individuals, each project adding a distinctive narrative to my artistic journey.

I invite you to explore my portfolio on Instagram to glimpse the range and depth of my work. Additionally, I have showcased some of my commissioned pieces below to provide a closer look at the meticulous attention to detail and creative finesse I bring to every project.
