Visual Artwork

In 2018 I began painting and drawing again after a hiatus of more than two decades. I knew from earliest childhood that I was an artist, and until I was 30 or so, I made my living painting and doing illustration and graphic design. The reasons I stopped were more political than personal. You can read all about them in “What Was I Thinking?” an essay I published in January 2019.

The portraits pictured on this page have all been completed since then. Please feel free to use the contact page of this website if you’re interested in exploring a commission or purchase.
