Academically trained in research and writing as an historian, I am also a self-taught artist, designer, author, biographer, blogger, public speaker, and entrepreneur. In recent years, I have forged together my love of writing about early American history and art to produce works that are most meaningful to me and hopefully encourage others to study America's past.
I have served as a featured speaker at various engagements on topics related to early American history. I have also authored several books on early America. My art represents portraits and events of people from early America. I am now working on my “The Many Faces of George Washington” series in art, producing a new line of stationery products, researching and writing about the early Republic, and working on a home decor business featuring rustic and bohemian styled products.
I am currently open to commissions for art and writing projects. Please contact me to discuss your options. Thank you!
