The term “Starving Artist” exists for a reason.  While my professional training may have been in taxidermy, my lifestyle may be dedicated to farming, and my business is rooted in earth-based products, at heart I am an artist.  I create for the pleasure and satisfaction of creating something unique and beautiful.  Not unlike my affinity for taxidermy, I enjoy recreating expression and capturing moments and emotion on paper as well.   Raptors are a favorite subject of mine.  Graphite and chalk pastels are my specialties.

Generally, my art is something I do for myself and the people in  my life.  If you’d like me to create something meaningful for you, feel free to reach out.  My photo-realistic portrait work often takes 20-40 hours per graphite portrait.  Full body, full color, or complex work can take over 60 hours.  Impressionistic portrait work may be 5 to 10 hours.  While I have no set commission or wage for my artwork, I appreciate when my time is taken into consideration by anyone  requesting that I invest that time into a project that is meaningful to them.  To put it simply; I let folks let me know what my artwork is worth to them.  If the project intrigues me or piques my interest, I will take  it on.  I know how many business-minded people cringe at that,  but at the end of the day, hey, art is not my livelihood.
