Your personal collection has more than aesthetic value when you are part of the planning and design. If you are in search of a piece of artwork that truly represents your personal taste and style, you can commission me to paint it for you. I have been painting Cape landscapes and waterscapes for many years and I specialize in oysters shells and historic oyster shacks, vintage doorways, pet portraits and painted furniture, including jelly cabinets and flat screen TV covers.

By commissioning, you acquire something completely unique that fits that special spot in your home or office. Time and trust are the two necessary ingredients - your ideas and my experience can produce customer satisfaction.

To commission a piece of artwork, contact me by phone or email to discuss your project. Please include medium, size and subject and we will set up an appointment to meet in my studio or your home to discuss the details. Many customer testimonials and referrals available.

Twelve Wellfleet Oysters for New Jersey Home

Twelve Wellfleet Oysters for New Jersey Home
This oil painting on a panel 36 x 48 was commissioned by a family that visits Wellfleet for a week every summer after they found me on the web. First we talked and emailed. They knew what they wanted - Wellfleet oyster shells - and could visualize the spot where the painting would hang in their home, size requirements and background color. Production was up to me and they were included in the process as I emailed progress updates. Finally, just before they left,  they came to my studio on Cahoon Hollow Road to pick up the completed painting.
