Cypress Knees

Twelve inches to three feet high, and as beautiful as it is unique,

this is about as Louisiana as it gets.



Not always laying around and ideal for painting, but every now and then a good one drifts along.



A new endeavor that proves internet artistry is harder than it looks. Challenge Accepted!


Reclaimed Wood

A little more plentiful and rough around the edges, trash

becomes a treasure.

The Artist

With a fine arts art degree from LSU buried deep inside my closet somewhere, I’ve been working as a professional illustrator, graphic designer and photographer for over 20 years. However, it wasn’t until recently that I became a detailed oriented and perfectionist driven fine artist with aspirations of selling art and earning a living.
