I am a ‘mostly’ self taught artist, but have taken directions and workshops for years to help me along. I love paint what I love. In other words, I love people, so I paint them! I love nature, so I paint scenes that move me. I love animals, I love boats and seascapes, so I … well, you get the picture! Painting outside, known as ‘plein air’ is my favorite. Nothing is better to be on the spot to capture the beauties that Mother Earth has given us! I also love to have fun with some of my cards. Click on my Christmas Cards to see my hand painted cards that I create every year. Oooh how I love dogs! I absolutely love creating dog (or cat, horse, cows…whatever!) portraits. I melt with every new tail wagger I have the honor to paint!
