About My Business

I have been represented by numerous fine arts galleries and am currently represented by "Gingerbread Square Gallery" (Key West, FLA), "Tirage Gallery " (Pasadena, CA), and in "Patron's Gallery" (Denver, CO). The last book, self-published with BLURB, is the only "ART/TRAVEL" theme book to date. These galleries will have a copy of my book on display for clients to order through Blurb.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Based on six years of sketchbooks and journals created during 5 trips to France, this is a "laugh out loud" book that reads a bit like Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence," --but is more like "Two Weeks in Burgundy." The sketches are charming, fresh, and funny. The stories are witty, humorous, adventurous and even SCARY!. For collectors of sketchbooks this is a must and will appeal to travelers as well as those interested in art. Includes photos of finished oil paintings based on sketches.
