American Legacy Art 

I began creating artwork as a teenager in the 1970's, and while it earned me a number of national awards, I abandoned an art career in order to attend business school and serve my country as an officer in the United States Army.

Having some unique talent isn't enough. I learned early on that having the drive and desire to succeed at something can sometimes be more important. For me it took nearly 30 years to come to the conclusion that combining my love of American History with my artistic curiosity, would finally give me the drive and desire to create artwork with meaning. My original portraits of iconic, and sometimes heroic American leaders tell the story of our great nation. I hope you enjoy them.
