About Me

I am an artist whose work has an intensely historical, even biographical concept to it. I see the objects that I paint through the eyes of a 18th century artist and craftsman. My goal as an artist is to create every item with an historical past with an aged look and feel to it. I made a pouch for the Leonardo DeCaprio movie, The Revenant" as well as the pouch for Billie Bob Thornton (Davey Crockett) for the movie The Alamo, and also provided other props for this movie. Early American Life magazine thrice named me one of the top craftsmen in America for both my paintings and my leatherwork.. My pouches were rated for their quality workmanship, fidelity to period design and construction techniques by judges expert in museum-quality antiques and fine, high-end reproductions. My work has also been featured in videos, tv documentaries and numerous times in magazines and on their covers. Thank you for visiting my blog.

RECORDS OF MARRIAGE & BIRTH FRAKTUR a wonderful way to remember the best moments of life! Great for anniversaries, weddings, new births and birthdays. A blend of original art and personalized sentiments.

In early America, these announcements featured primitive drawings of angels, birds, flowers, hearts, etc. The resulting Early American Folk Art art or Fraktur was often the record of a family's history. These items were hung on walls, pasted inside trunks and passed on from generation to generation.
You provide the details to create a wonderful keepsake, Each one is personalized with the information that you send.  I then combine your information with the fraktur art, print it on a heavy stock paper and then hand watercolor each one individually. Size: 8 1/2 x 11”. Can fit an  8 1/2 x 11” document frame or can be cropped to fit into an 8” x 10” frame.

If you'd like a RECORD OF MARRIAGE, just send me the name of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding. For RECORD OF BIRTH, I need the name of the child, sex, date of birth and the mother and father's name.  If they are a Mr. and Mrs., let me know. Otherwise just give me their names.
