First Kiss Reverse Glass Painting"The technique I use is Reverse Painting on glass. I had seen Reverse Painting while I was growing up and was captivated by its depth and radiance. When I finally started painting, I decided to teach myself to reverse paint on glass instead of learning to paint the "normal" way. Although I can, and do, paint the traditional way, in acrylics or watercolors, I prefer the crisp, clean brilliance that comes from painting on glass. I use dangerous techniques, employing shards of glass, razor blades, ice picks, scalpels, and even fire to build textures." First Kiss
Paintings & Giclée Prints"Glass paintings offer a luminance that is quite rare. The paintings themselves are quite vivid and lustrous, and that radiance translates remarkably well into the many wonderful limited edition prints, posters, bookmarks and cards that we have produced from them."

Own an Original"I have been working with glass for thirty+ years, with artworks in collections worldwide. My paintings can be translucent, similar to stained glass, but with much more detail and with more flexibility in the subject matter. It can also be totally opaque, framed to hang on your wall."

But How Do I Get It Home???

My paintings are on glass. Shipping of glass originals may seem dangerous. I have been in the business of selling and shipping my artworks for a number of years with only one painting ever being broken by the shipper, and that was due to the shipping company driving a steel rod completely through the crate. This would have rendered any original, no matter what the material, a total loss. Great care is taken to insure that each painting is padded and crated securely enough for it to travel anywhere. The same care goes into packaging and shipping limited edition prints, notecards, postcards and bookmarks.

Can I Order A New Painting?

Absolutely!!! I do a lot of commission work. If you see a painting in my gallery that you like, and want a similar one for yourself, or if you want something completely new - send me an eMail and we'll start work on your new painting.

What About Illustration Work?

My paintings reproduce brilliantly. The colors are vivid and rich and the quality is crisp and clean. We do our own photography and scanning and use an exceptional photo lab, producing perfect quality transparencies of my paintings for reproduction. High quality digital files may be delivered from our FTP server directly to your service bureau, to specification, for your use. The publication rights on all of my existing paintings are negotiable, or I can create a new work of art for your specific purpose.
