*One of the benefits of being involved in the sports industry is, as a fan I'm constantly learning. Prior to 1997 I had no idea who Ted Williams was. It is through collectors and fans, many who watched him play back in the day, that I have an appreciation for players like him and why he is so revered. On a personal note and to this day, I have done and sold more paintings of Ted Williams than any other player. Michael Jordan is a close second.
*A few years ago, my agent at the time secured for me a commission as well as a face to face meeting with Mr. Aaron at his estate in Atlanta. I don't have enough eloquence to describe the experience, and the man. I make note of this as not all "superstars" or "legends" are so gracious or even friendly. Hank Aaron truly examplifies and represents all that is good and pure in baseball, and sports as a whole.
I have been a sports artist since 1996, and in that span I've been fortunate in that my work has been associated with the likes of the Redskins, Hank Aaron, Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, Peter Bondra and Jaromir Jagr to name a few. But it's the countless many sports fans and collectors that I've had the pleasure of meeting from all over the country and all walks of life that ultimately makes the job rewarding.
On this site I wanted to post and share some of my favorite paintings done over the years as well as new works that are available. In addition to the finished piece, i have also posted photos of the painting at different stages. Please feel free to contact me for any questions including information on custom portraits. Thank you!
