     I am an award-winning local artist inspired by my days fishing in Boca Grande and Chokoloskee.  My art is a vehicle promoting sustainability and conservation of native territories and wildlife for future generations.  My mission is to motivate outdoorsmen to preserve resources for the enjoyment of all.
     I cover a variety of mediums and styles with my fine art. I render the beauty of my home state with custom, personalized, hand-painted fiberglass fish mounts featuring detailed wildlife and landmarks. These “tattooed” pieces are an indelible reminder that the permanence of unique wildlife in the Florida Everglades depends on the effectiveness of our efforts to be sustainable and responsible. I’ve created work on many species and sizes from sea turtles to bonefish. Tarpon continue to be the most popular mount.
     Sepia toned paintings and fish mounts have become a sought-after trademark style of mine. Sepia tones look like woodcarving or scrimshaw in the way that I apply the paint. Nostalgic Florida themes convey elegance and timelessness in this style.
     I also enjoy painting bright, large-format acrylic paintings on stretched canvas, dye-painted raw silks, and watercolors on cold-pressed cotton paper. Bright works create emotional responses through expression of light, water, color and texture. I like to capture the energy of fighting fish or the tranquility of swimming turtles.
     In any media, I transport you into an experience brought to life with my brush. Since 2002, I have exhibited work in conjunction with fishing tournaments, galleries, and invitational or juried fine art festivals. My work has been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and is on display in both private collections and public spaces.
