    What's New


    Launched Fineartbistro.com

    Woohoo! What a great feeling!
    To have the blood, sweat, and countless late-night coding sessions completed. I am excited to help my established clients sell their work online, and look forward to helping up-and-coming artists sell their work!


    10 Years in the Making

    So I've been busy. I left school 10 years ago, moved west to California, and turned my passion into a career. This site highlights the efforts I have put toward others in my career path, but also celebrates my own passion ~ a life of photography. It's been a long time coming. Hope you enjoy.
