I'm a professional animal/wildlife artist specializing in acrylic paintings and life-like gourd sculpture. My preferred style is photo-realism, everything you see in my gallery are artworks. *** I DO NOT UPLOAD PHOTOGRAPHS (it prevents confusion ;))*** I accept commissions so you can have a special artwork that can be enjoyed for generations. I only use the highest quality paints and surfaces. Along with acrylics I also use colored pencil, graphite, and ink. Check out my website and Gourd Blogs too!

Current Residence: NC, USA

Personal Quote: "If ART isn't from the HEART, then is it ART at all?"

Hi everyone! I know Facebook isn't for everybody, but if you visit and post on Facebook as yourself or your business (good for promotions atleast) then let's share likes and give friend requests! Unlike here on DA where I upload mainly finished products, rarely WIPs, I keep Facebook constantly updated with my projects. For instance, I'm currently making another large gourd dragon on commission...on my personal FB page or business page you can see the dragon coming along in all her epic glory! She's going to be amazing! I don't feel compelled to upload tons of WIPs and progress shots here so Facebook or Instagram is the only place you're going to be able to see them. And I'm more active there, so I'll be able to see your doings too if you use it for advertising or business related stuff. :)

Feel free to friend me or INVITE me to like YOUR business page. I'll like if you like back, either my business art page or my book page for "Improbable...Never Impossible." Let's all be friends! Because all of you are my friends already for being great viewers, favers, and commenters. :hug:

My personal page:

My "Art from the Heart" business page:…

My page for Improbable...Never Impossible children's book:…

I'm not going away on here, I've just been less active lately with lots of things going on. Been busy promoting my new children's book below, and I've entered my very first art exhibition. Then I entered several more after that that're still in the jury process. I guess I'm late to the game of professional artist shows. I've been painting for 7 years and I've just NOW got the courage to look at galleries and such! Better late than never I suppose lol. :shrug:

If you're on Facebook don't forget to say hi, friend me, or invite a like! :wave:

Hello, I have been watching you for years and there's two paintings that I adore. I would love to actually own them as a print (a poster maybe) and I wonder how much this would cost me(maybe there are different formats to choose from?) The specific paintings I'm referring to are these:

pond thugs - art-fromthe-heart.deviantart.c…
crowned victorians - art-fromthe-heart.deviantart.c…

I figured that since I've admired them for so long my empty wall would greatly benefit from owning these works. I hope I will be able to afford them.

Hi! :wave: Thank you, I'm glad you like my work :heart: I have all of my paintings set up for print on Fine Art My page is here:… Pond Thugs and Crowned Victorians are on the first page, just scroll down to find them. Their prices are pretty reasonable with a variety of options. They're a very reliable company, I've been using their print service for years.

Thank you again, and all the best!
