I am an illustrator, focusing on portraiture. I earned a BFA from Auburn University in 2008 and began working full-time as an illustrator in 2010. I've had the privilege of working for some amazing clients over the years, without whose generous commissions my family would not be as blessed today as we are. 

My portrait painting skills have been largely self-taught. Thankfully, we live in a era when information is extremely accessible and I have devoured tips and teachings from other artists whose works I admire. Some of the artists that have influenced my style and methods are Drew Struzan, Steve Penley, Robert Barrett, Barrett Bailey, David Jon Kassan, Stephen Holland, and James Knight (aka @FOURHUNDREDML).

I am currently the official portrait painter for the National Trial Lawyer Association Hall of Fame. Additionally, my sports illustrations can be found in Topps, Upperdeck, Sportkings, and Wheeler Collection trading card products.

My current daily supplies include: 
- Iwata HP-A airbrush,
- Iwata HP-CS airbrush,
- Daler Rowney acrylic inks,
- Amsterdam acrylic inks,
- Golden acrylics,
- Daler-Rowney Artist's Acrylics,
- Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics, 
- Winsor & Newton Galeria brushes,
- Blick Scholastic Wonder Whites brushes,
- General's charcoal pencils and conte sticks,
- Faber-Castel Drafting Mechanical Pencil and Leads,
- Golden Polymer Varnish,
- Staedtler Lumocolor pens
Creating art over the years would not have been possible without the love, support, and sacrifices of my friends and family, especially my wife, Colleen. The evolution of my art is a reflection of their Christ-like charity towards me. I thank God for them daily.
