I have always loved art and have been painting since I was a teenager. I am mostly self-taught but I have studied under many prominent artists throughout the years. While raising a family, I put art on hold until my kids grew up. If I wasn't painting, I was always doing something creative. When I begin painting again later in life, people started requesting to buy my art! I was so honored that they enjoyed my work and wanted to purchase my art. From there, I decided that I would become a full-time artist and do what I was always meant to do every day of my life!
I enjoy creating with oil and acrylic paints. My clients provide me a 1-5 photos of any subject that they would like me to replicate. We talk about what medium to be used, size and frame choices. I also enjoy photography and often capture my own images and work from those images. I find my paintings more personal for myself when I actually take the photography from a special place that I visited or had some type of memory at that place.
Animals! I adore animals and that is why I decided to focus mostly on pet portraiture! Pets bring so much joy to the families that own them. My painting style is realistic and detailed. I try to capture the unique features of the pet so that it really looks like the pet in the reference photo. I know how special these portraits are because I have lost dogs and cats that I loved very much and miss them everyday. I am grateful that I had the ability to paint them so they can be near me everyday. Pet portraits make such sentimental, meaningful gifts for anyone that loves pets as much as I do. I find it rewarding to be capable of giving people this gift as well.
