Art from the Heart

Fine art paintings are my ultimate source of personal expression and exploration. Because of this fact, I rarely take on commissioned paintings - it's too much pressure! However, once in a blue moon a great opportunity grabs hold of me...

I had the honor of creating a very special gift for singer/songwriter & Verve Pipe front-man Brian VanderArk from his lovely (also singing/songwritting) wife Lux Land & their adorable daughter Evie.

Brian had written a song for Evie a while ago, and that became the central focus of inspiration for me. With the help of some photos from Lux and Brian's lyrics for his daughter, I was able to paint a piece I am really proud of. I hope you like it too!
