ART EXPANSION PLAN: HAPPENING OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS!

Hello, friends! I thought I’d stop by and let you know that I have been working diligently on a new art expansion plan that will be coming to fruition within the coming months.

As many of you may not know, between working in the Tampa, FL area as well as in Los Angeles, the vast majority of my artwork sales are generated from private commissions–either the individual has seen my work in galleries, private homes or on the side of very large buildings. 🙂 In addition to my current workflow, I now plan to create and offer affordable works on various online sites such as Fine Art AmericaSaatchi Art, etc. This is an exciting new phase for me as I can now create works that will be available to many more people. So I’m happy and excited to have you along for the ride! (I also intend to check in here and blog more frequently– I promise!)

I will continue to accept commissions, as always, so if you still have that wild idea you’d just love to have put on canvas or paper, contact me and let me know the specifics!

We’ll talk again soon!
