*The Athlete Who Inspired Me To Become A Sports Artist

I recently completed this painting for 1982 all star, Michel Dion, who took the time to autograph a drawing of mine of him, that same year, when I was 11 years old.  Mr. Dion, thank you for inspiring me so many years ago:)

Welcome to my website.  I am so glad that you are here.  I am an elementary art teacher by day, and I moonlight as an accomplished sports artist when not in the classroom.  I have been a teacher since 1993, but have been a sports artist my entire life *.  I can recall sketching for hours as a child, pouring through pages of sports magazines, drawing my heroes, and dreaming of one day having my own studio.  Through the grace of God, I have realized my dream.  I am proud to say that my work now resides in the homes of many prominent athletes, past and present.
