My Art

A portfolio showcasing a selection of art pieces I've created over the years.

 

I have no formal training but I love painting and drawing when I'm not wrangling with physics or writing. From time to time, I sell my pieces via Etsy. I'm also open for commissions, including portraits in oil, pencil or pen, get in touch via jmayhowell@gmail.com.
