In my early days, I designed & made wedding gowns, and worked in graphics design. Since then, I’ve written art instructional books and taught online. My focus is now in art licensing and portrait painting.
Creating things is a huge part of my life.
My personal aesthetic leans toward small, loose pencil sketches, unpredictable paint strokes & textures, and interesting color combinations. I am naturally drawn to sketching objects, figures, & faces.
A driving inspiration in my paintings & sketches is to create an ambiance, an emotion, or to recall a beautiful memory. These things can be achieved through the use of color in a moody painting, or the delicate details in a sketch of a cherished object or person.
