Welcome. I began the The Renaissance Fine Art and Photography Studio in 2006 in Aurora, Nebraska. After a busy 15 year run in Eastern Nebraska I have now moved my studio back to my roots in Western Nebraska. My studio is located just out side of Alliance and just off of scenic Highway 2. This move has allowed me to better concentrate on creating art. I will be continually adding new artwork to my Paintings and Fine Prints page so please stop back to view those images and if interested please give my a call or drop me an email.
