Welcome

Here you may view a selection of my original art and prints, some of which are available for purchase. I am known and recognized for my equine art. I specialize in thoroughbred horse racing; although, I enjoy painting all types of breeds and disciplines. Horses have played an integral role in the building and history of this country and many others. These majestic gentle giants represent strength, independence and the adventuresome spirit of mankind. Horses are so well-regarded, that more than eighty percent of homes in the U.S. will feature some sort of equine related art as decoration. I hope you enjoy your visit and I would like to encourage you to contact my studio with any interest or questions you may have. I appreciate you visiting my site.
