Or do you have empty space on your wall that you want to fill, but don’t know exactly what would be right for it?

A fine art commission is the perfect way to get a piece of art that speaks uniquely to you, and allows you to experience the creative process as well.

A Walk through San Pedro

Whether you arrive in San Pedro, Belize by water taxi, or a single engine Cessna, you’re guaranteed to step into a damp, salty atmosphere where magic lingers at every turn. Hidden in the shade of the coconut palms, woven through the tangled mangrove branches, glistening in the seawater shimmer, the island possesses an energy that I’m blessed to connect with.

How a Work of Art turned into a Community Project

I’ll never forget the time in my life that I designed The Love Necklace. I was just trying to heal myself from an abusive situation. I had no idea where that simple design would lead me, but here we are, 10 strong mentors coupled with 10 girls who needed a dose of empowerment.

A note about the recipient of The Love Necklace

I want to thank everyone who is a part of The Love Necklace Community. There is a woman who is healing from domestic abuse who is wearing the Love Necklace that was gifted to her through the purchase of a Love Necklace. I wish you could have been there when she received it so you could have seen how grateful she was... how much she smiled.

The Power of Creative Connection

It wouldn't have crossed my mind to illustrate and African inspired watercolor quadryptich, or paint a portrait of Saint Lucy, or to capture the sweet innocence of a jungle-themed nursery, but over the past year, the work that I've been commissioned to paint for my clients has become a hugely important component in my body of work.

Relax your Mind


I approached the crude structure and pulled aside a piece of madras fabric that had been fashioned into an entrance.  Incense smoke twisted and curled through the air in a thick haze.  As my eyes adjusted to the dimly lit, smoke filled room, they fixated upon a Nefertiti-esque woman.

Coconuts Falling on a Hot Tin Roof

I arrived in San Pedro town on Tuesday evening, after a long day of travel. My love was waiting for me at the water taxi station, ready to take me to a private house on a secluded beach front property on the north side of the island.  He planned to help a friend with some work on the property while giving me some quiet time to work on my art.

This is a Journey

Yesterday morning, I sat in front of my laptop and dutifully tried to write a weekly 'Love-spiration' email and... I had no idea what to write about.  My intention is always to write from a genuine and thoughtful place, but I was blocked.

I want to be Iron like a Lion

Often, my art illustrates the landscape of Texas, the Gulf, and the Caribbean, but when an amazing client asked me to illustrate a collective of African images, I fell in love with the process.  I found an inherent strength in studying and rendering images from a continent built upon ages of vibrant culture and wisdom.
