Painting is a relatively new medium for me since I didn't begin painting until college, but there are just some things that must be done with a brush instead of a pencil or computer. The things I enjoy most about painting are the way colors blend together in paint. There is nothing quite like it in any of the other mediums.


I am often asked to create portraits of various people or pets. Here are some of my favorites.

Sports Paintings

These paintings came about after my boss requested that I create some backgrounds for some video interviews we were doing. So I grabbed some paint and splattered a quick Ohio State Logo on a black background. From that, I began to create these other paintings.
