COMMISSION A PAINTING of your home, school, or other favorite place.
Standard sizes and prices are 5"x7" for $200; 8"x10" for $400; and 11"x14" for
$600. After I photograph the view you want, it takes about three weeks to
complete a commissioned work. Each painting is matted generously to a
standard frame size.
If you want your painting put in a simple frame, the cost is $30 to $40 extra,
depending on size.
NEIGHBORHOOD MAPS are available of Historic U Street;
Dupont Circle & Kalorama Heights; Adams Morgan; Capitol Hill;
Cleveland Park; Glover Park & Woodley Park; Mt. Pleasant;
Marvin Gaye Park; Georgetown; and Old Town, Alexandria.
Also: A bicentennial map of historic Congressional Cemetery,
and a map of locally owned businesses in the Adams Morgan-U
Street-Mt. Pleasant-Columbia Heights neighborhoods, created
for the Latino Economic Development Corporation's "Think
Local First" campaign. Each map is printed using archival ink
and paper and matted to fit in a standard 16"x20" frame; the
price is $40.

|ABOUT ME: My artwork has been commissioned by the National Building
Museum, Stephen Decatur House, DAR Museum, U.S. Forest Service Visitor's
Center, The Nature Conservancy, Blair House Restoration Fund, D.C. Convention
Center Authority, Downtown Business Improvement District and many others.
Since 2005, I've worked with Howard University archaeologists to identify and
protect two unmarked, 19th Century African American and Quaker cemeteries in
Walter C. Pierce Community Park in Adams Morgan.
I studied photography at the Corcoran School of Art and received a journalism
degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder. As a reporter for the
Washington Times, I covered the White House, Capitol Hill and Justice
Department. Before turning to art full-time, I was the spokesperson for
Iran-contra Independent Counsel Lawrence Walsh and editor of his final report.
