He has permanent collections in the Cincinnati Art Museum, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, Georgetown College, Lakeland College, and the University of Cincinnati. From 2011-2013 his paintings were hung in the Ohio Governor's executive offices in Columbus, Ohio, and he has a current installation in the U.S. Ambassador's office in Nairobi, Kenya.
