Welcome to Sunthing Special, your source for fun, funky, colorful works of art!
I'm an Akron, Ohio-based artist who specializes in acrylic painting on canvas, photography, and works with recycled objects. For the best selection of goodies, visit my studio/gallery at Summit Artspace, Third Floor, 140 E. Market St., Akron.

LIMITED EDITION! Sun design painted hubcaps. Only 20 will be available, 8 are already sold and 10 are currently available for sale (I still have two to paint). Cost for each is $100, with $20 to benefit the Akron-area charity Life is Good No Matter What.
CBS Sunday Morning has aired five of my sun images a total of eight times.
I have a big selection of suns! You can choose from more than 25 original sun paintings available as originals, prints and/or notecards.
I'm an unofficial ambassador for the city of Akron, Ohio! Akron is on a roll, and if you want to show your pride in Akron, I've got the stuff for you -- postcards, key chains, pens, mugs, window clings, magnets and more. You can purchase them online (click here), at my studio, or at the Akron-Canton Airport. For more information, please visit the "Akron Pride" page.
In 2013, through efforts at my studio and direct donations, I was able to raise $1,000 for The Water Project, $380 for the All-American Soap Box Derby (to pay for two children to attend a week-long camp in summer of June 2014), and $120 for Life Is Good No Matter What (LIGNMW). This year my goal is to raise more money for LIGNMW and donate 150 7"x9" knitted rectangles to Warm Up Akron. With the help of other area knitters, so far we have donated more than 250!
