Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

More Creative Journalling

We had so much fun journalling this summer, the Powers That Be at Little Monsters have invited us back!! You are invited to join another 5 week Creative Journalling workshop with me, Kimberly Santini. Come learn new techniques, play with new materials and express your inner Picasso.

The classes will introduce K-8 students to Creative Journalling (recording ideas and memories via use of a variety of art and writing techniques). Participants do not need to be artists, nor do they need to have a command of traditional writing skills.

Students will be introduced to a variety of art concepts and materials, allowed hands on time each week to actively work on their journals, and encouraged to continue exploring the various approaches outside of class time. Ultimately, participants will emerge with a means of personal expression not solely based in writing or artmaking, but with a developing voice that embraces the elements of storytelling using a variety of tools.

Sessions will run every other Sunday, beginning September 26 and running through November 21. Each class will begin at 1pm and go until 2:30. $60/child includes all classes and all supplies excepting a journal. (I am trying to order special journals for students – details to follow!)

Each week there will be a short presentation (visuals/how-to presentation) designed to inspire and begin the creative process. Students will also bring home a weekly handout briefly outlining materials used, and when appropriate, bibliography or additional resource information.

Due to limited space, classes will be held to the first 14 students registering.

Registration requests (along with requests for additional information) may come to me. Payment is due prior to class date - this allows for purchasing and planning an appropriate quantity of materials (sorry, no exceptions!). It also assures that I am ready to begin interacting with your child at the start of class.

Sept 26th: Pattern 101 – carving & making our own stamps
Oct 10th: Thinking Beyond the Page – learning basic pop-up and non-standard page construction
Oct 24th: The Power of the Written Word – exploring specialty fonts via stamps and collage
Nov 7th: Silhouettes – introducing techniques utilizing shapes and resist
Nov 21st: Collaged Covers – we'll build a collage for our journal covers

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

I am looking forward to working with your child!

Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork and musings with your friends and family.
