I was raised training, hunting and field trialing sporting dogs. Since receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art (’78) and Master of Art (’80) in painting from the University of Tulsa, my sole occupation has been that of a sporting artist. Coupling these experiences with over 40 years as a professional artist gives me the unique ability to paint your dog(s) in a true hunting setting. Each year I have the honor of painting some of the most distinguished sporting dogs in the world. I am proud to be the official artist for the following championships and award programs:

The National Pointing Dog Championship
Purina’s Outstanding Field Trial Awards
Open All-Age Brittany of the Year Award
Amateur All-Age Brittany of the Year Award
N.S.T.R.A. Champion of Champions
N.S.T.R.A. UKC Performance Classic
N.S.T.R.A. Purina Endurance Classic

Each painting is unique to the individual client, subject and landscape. I do not copy a single photograph but rather work from numerous photographic reference materials to create a one of a kind portrait. An original oil painting is truly the ultimate way to pay tribute to your dog(s).
