I would like to share a sweet experience I had many years ago. My grandfather was celebrating a birthday and I decided that I wanted to do something really special so I drew a picture of him. When I presented my gift, he was so happy and excited. More than 8 years have passed and to this day whenever we visit he mentions that picture.

Have you ever tried to think of the perfect Birthday, Anniversary, or Christmas gift? I would love to take a special portrait and turn it into something that your family will cherish for years. I hope everyone that recieves a Perfect Pencil portrait by me can have the same exact experience I had with my Grandfather.

Be sure to place your orders before the holiday season as requests will take up to 2 weeks to complete. Please visit often, copies of my work can also be purchased upon request.

Thanks for visiting.

This is my latest picture. I completed this for an anniversary gift. It came out very nice and I had a fun time working on it.

Raffle Time

So the raffle took place late last night. And the winner is...Drum roll please...Jami Bushman! Congratulations. The estimated completion date is Nov. 7th.

I will be doing a few pictures this month and will post the finsihed products here.

The Triplets

I did this drawing for my brother and his wife. I had a lot of fun doing it. These girls are the cutest! I did this back in 2004 when they were about 2 years old (I think).

My boys

This is my most recent project (2008). It was an anniversary gift for Andrea. She loved this picture so much. When she made it into a black and white photo, I thought it would make a great drawing. It turned out really nice.


This picture was done back in 2006. It was a picture that Andrea really liked and I decided to draw if for her.

Christ and children

I did this picture back in 2003. It was the first drawing that I did for Andrea. We were dating and I wanted to do something really special for her. It has been hanging in our home for years and we love it so much.
