AUTOGRAPHS ON ARTWORK
"I got my piece today and I'll say it again. I'm more than blown away. All the detail and the colors are spot on. Even the visor on Champ's helmet. You will definitely be getting more orders from me to start a collection of your work. Thanks again for the time and effort you put into your work. It's definitely worth the waiting list your building." - Satisfied Customer, Spring 2014
"Just got my package!! Unbelievable!! Looks even better in person. I almost cried! Thanks so much and I'll be chatting soon about another piece."
- R. Pohlman, November 2014
As an avocation, I was filling sketchbooks, notepads and boxes of loose copy paper with drawings since before I can remember. I graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2004 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts: Illustration and 2-D Concepts. As an occupation, I have only been creating art for just under 3 years. I came back to art after 6 years of post-college corporate work. Best decision I ever made. I realize how lucky I am for being able to say I'm a sports artist.
