What kinds of commissioned works do you paint?
“My paintings capture remarkable memories in each collector's life. Each custom painting is tailored to the collector's wishes, pairing seamlessly with their decor while celebrating the moments that matter to them."
How has your business changed since moving it to Milwaukee?
“The biggest difference is that going to an appointment-based business model allows me to not only devote time to individual customers’ needs, but focus more on growing my corporate and commissioned base. It’s a solid balance that lets me devote time to painting and growing my business."
Why did you relocate?
“I’m originally from New Berlin and while I did well in Plymouth, I also appreciate the energy and dynamic of a large city."
How has business been?
“The Third Ward is a great fit for my business. The location and my business setup also allow me to travel for corporate customers. I recently did the artwork for the BMW Championship in Pennsylvania. My new studio is a combination of people coming here as well as travel to meet clients at various events. The Third Ward also hosts events that let visitors experience this dynamic neighborhood."
What are your current projects?
“Along with corporate commissions, I just released my newest book with Elise Cantrell, 'Angel Thoughts: Inspiration Peace by Peace.' Each year, I paint a different Collectors Edition Christmas Ornament - this year’s is Santa. I’ll also participate in the Wisconsin Holiday Market in Kohler, along with several Third Ward holiday events."
