As a portrait artist, I'm in the storytelling business. They're not my stories to tell, necessarily, but somehow through the miracle of the interwebs, or by word of mouth, or just plain luck, people find me and ask me to tell them in their stead. Through art.

These stories range from the joyous (wedding portraits!) to the heartbreaking (a lost pet) and everything in between.

I make people cry.

A lot.

In this calendar, and through these images, I'll be sharing the stories of clients who have supported me as an artist, as well as those that are just finding me.

I hope to do your stories justice.

Your funding will: - Pay for printing and production costs of the calendar - Include shipping for your reward, if selected*
