Over the past 20 years, I have created hundreds of portraits for loved ones, families, organizations and institutions.
These collaborations have honored life’s greatest moments, and celebrated the legacies of the ones most treasured.
It would be my honor to collaborate with you.
When it comes to celebrating your loved ones, I understand your sense of urgency. Let me tell you a story about a young American artist and the beautiful German woman he fell in love with. This is my story.
I had just graduated from art school, and begun a career as an artist when we first met and fell helplessly in love. We were living on separate continents at the time, but I knew I wanted to marry this woman from the moment I saw her. Mirjam was leaving the U.S. in just thirteen days, returning to her home country of Germany for University. How could I reveal my love and commitment to her in a tangible way from across the ocean?
Filled with a sense of urgency, I painted a portrait of us in an embrace and sent it across the Atlantic to her. With this beautiful new painting to look upon, Mirjam would not easily forget about me. The portrait represented the connection we shared, and marked a significant moment in our lives...those first days when we fell in love.
We endured four long years on separate continents before she left her home and country to marry me. For that I am forever grateful. This treasured portrait still hangs in our home today as a hallmark of the time we fell in love.
We've been married for seventeen years now, and live in Connecticut with our two wonderful sons. Lucas already has his portrait on the wall, and Joshua is still waiting...the story continues!
