I am a creative soul inspired by color, texture and chocolate!
I have been doodling since I can remember, studied a bit of design in college and then raised a family ( kept the creative juices flowing with kid projects, classroom crafting and the occasional painting).
I became more serious about my art in the last few years as I find myself with an empty nest and more time to create. Finally overcoming my fear of public speaking, I now love to inspire others to find their own creativity through teaching art classes and sharing my passion .
I specialize in one of a kind pet portraits, working in acrylics, pastels and oils.... whichever best suits the subject matter. The biggest compliment to me is getting an emotional response from my client and know that I have done my job well when they are literally moved to tears. "The eyes are the windows to the soul" holds very true in the world of portraiture!
More recently, I have stepped out of my comfort zone doing more abstract pieces and larger works including a few murals!
Cheers! The best is yet to come...
