My commission process strives to be very collaborative.

There are many approaches to art, from process to end game. As an artist, the inspiration and motive can vary with each piece. Most artists are introverted and in their happy place where they can get in their head and find their groove, myself included. Through the years of creating commercial art, I love the balance of social collaboration – the challenge of input from others while remaining true to my subjective esthetic tastes. I have found collaborations will push your personal growth to ‘see’ things that you might not have seen on your own.

Plenty of alone time is still involved to satisfy an artist’s desire.

Don’t get me wrong, I love painting for myself; however, for me, I will paint no matter what.

I tend to favor delivering the client’s emotional connection to the art because the process provides the opportunity for their personal investment.
