Since 2006, I have been boldly developing my skills as an oil painter. I've had 2 pieces that sold at the Frederic C. Hamilton Family Art Gallery in the Denver Children's Hospital, through the Art for Life program. I have also competed several commissioned pieces, all incorporating many different subjects. Along with many of my oil pieces, my graphite work has also been featured in on-line galleries and collections via DeviantArt.com. As of 2011, I have been awarded Best in Show, First place, and honorable mention awards in several shows.
