Paintings For Sale

Paintings for Sale and Commissioned Portraits

When buying from me you are buying more than an object or a painting. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of my heart; a part of my soul and a moment of my life.
Most importantly you are buying me more time to do what I am passionate about and what I love ~ Thank you.
