It has been over seven years since I made my first oil stick. Since then, they have gone through a long series of tweaks and adjustments as I sought to make them more functional and attractive as well. Just recently, with the help of graphic designer Angela Stasio, I came up with a label and a logo for each stick. We used my favorite butterfly as our logo. It's called a Diana Fritillary, a rare butterfly found only in mountain regions of Appalachia. I used a male butterfly as my model as the two genders of this dramatic butterfly are very different in appearance. The last few years have also been spent learning how to paint with these sticks. Lately it seems to be coming together for me as I have a better vision of what I want my paintings to look like. These oil sticks are very versatile and my artist customers use them in a variety of ways to create a diverse range of styles. It's been very exciting for me to see what fellow artists are coming up with! It has also been thrilling to connect with artists from all over the globe from Tennessee to Tasmania to Qatar and Australia! I can honestly say my oil sticks have traveled the world! I hope you will consider giving them a try!

Due to the inconsistencies in color on various computer monitors and flat panel displays, the images you see of my Oil Sticks may appear slightly different than the actual product. While I make every effort to match color as closely as possible on my website, colors will vary from display to display and therefore should be evaluated as a representative likeness and not as an exact match to the actual product.
I've been using multimedia artboard for a number of years. It's a great product, a tough, economical, archival surface that can handle any media including my oil sticks. I know you will love this surface! www.multimediaartboard.com
