On this website is a very small collection of my sold work, past and present, as well as a few selected paintings offered for sale here on my website or through galleries. Miniatures (under 24 square inches) and Small Works (Under 100 square inches). I very rarely paint outside of this size constraint. I love the delicate fine detail and intimacy of creating smaller works. This gallery will change over time. I will try and circulate older works as I rediscover them in the dusty folders on my computer. I hope you enjoy viewing them and feel free to reach out to me with questions and comments.

Awards & Upcoming Shows

I have been Blessed to receive many awards for my artwork, but it has never been about the awards to me. It is about being passionate about my work and constantly trying to improve upon my technique. The true beauty of fine art is that it is created by an individual spirit, unique and extraordinary in all its strengths and weaknesses. I also judge art shows, so please reach out to me if you would like to consider me as a judge for your event.

I have also worked for the past 14 years painting for a company on the east coast who specializes in luxury pens and gift items. I have painted for the Beautiful late Queen of England and many heads of state for gift items given from the US. It is a staggering honor for me to do this. It pushes the realm of possibilities for miniature art.

Nouveau Studio

Along with being a fine Artist I am also a Formulator creating custom Shampoo Bars, Lotions, Leave-In Conditioners and one-of-a-kind Perfumes. This is a hobby passion of mine and is a good balance for me for my artwork. I love going to markets and talking with my clients. My artwork takes such long hours at the drawing table and this passion/hobby gets me out and about which is a blessing for me.
