I have been a professional artist for fourteen years since earning my B.A. in Art from Johnson State College in Johnson, Vermont, but in reality, I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember.
I turned to colored pencil after trying practically every other medium and have fallen in love with the detail and depth that I can achieve with them. I am drawn to images of animals, nature and birds bathed in sunlight and shadows.
I work exclusively from photographs to create my vibrant, realistic images. I can create beautiful pet portraits from your photographs or, when possible, from photos I take myself. I also accept commissions for animals other than your own pets, such as wildlife, birds, marine life and so on. In addition to commissions my site has a number of completed paintings available for purchase. I also offer art lessons to both children and adults.
Dogs are wonderful to draw, I love their sparkling eyes and happy (most of the time) faces!
Cats have been and will most likely always remain my favorite animal and some of my favorite to draw!
I’ve always loved animals, tame and wildlife and can’t wait to add more drawings and expand this collection!
Birds have become one of my new passions and I have many, many more drawings planned!
