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.

Puppy Butt (Doxie)

"Puppy Butt (Doxie)," 6" square, Daschund puppy dog portrait, completed in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, available for $299. Inquiries or questions about how to commission a portrait of your best friend may come to me.


It happens to all of artists - some days you just can't slip into your groove. This painting had 3 false starts before I got going with any confidence.

Don't know if it was my teeny 1-1/2" reference photo, the constantly ringing phone, or the silly little guy's pose.

Regardless it's all behind me. And I'm grateful I was persistent. (Don't you like the darker underpainting showing through - the result of wiping down all the prior paintings!)

Thanks for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -


This year I'm going for an entirely homemade Christmas. For those few gifts that I can't make, I'm hitting Etsy.

Etsy is a great community of artisans and the perfect spot to find that one-of-a kind gift for that hard-to-shop for person on your list.

I've found sock monkey knitted caps, computer sleeves, vintage teatowels, crafted scarves and all sorts of other treasures.

I bet you could even find pet portraits and animal paintings there..... hmmm, that gives me an idea.....
