These are some of the Commissioned work I have done. They started with an idea and ended with a piece of art that my customers can be proud of. These customers are so nice to work with, they give me an idea, I give them back my interpretation and then we proceed to building what I hope will be what they had in mind or beyond. This process is very rewarding for me and my customers (at least I hope so). I also will include on this page "show" pieces that may not be in my inventory.
