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.

Creative Journalling!

One of my journal spreads featuring positive and negative zentangle imagery done with gouache, micron and souffle pens.

Journalling is back!

Creative Journalling for Kids - Sundays, April 17th, May 1st, May 15th, May 22nd and June 5th - 2 sessions, 11-12:30 and 1-2:30, all at Little Monsters Toy Store in Downtown Lake Orion. Sign up now and get all 5 sessions for $60, or take them individually (space allowing) for $15 each. Fees include all supplies but your child's journal.
  • This week we will introduce the concept of journalling, talk about the parts of a book, and spend some time with decorative text and symbols. We'll also discuss spatial relationships - real vs imaginary - and how we can manipulate them on our pages.

grownUP Journalling - Third Thursdays of each month (so April 21st will be our next meeting) - 6-8pm, also at Little Monsters Toy Store. Classes are $15 each, including all supplies but your journal.
  • Our April class will focus on the concept of art journalling, with an introduction to both planned and random patterning through the use of zentangles, spirographs and monoprints. We'll also be using water-based media, so if you like to "get into your art," bring a paint shirt.

Reservations for all classes come directly through me. There is limited space in our classroom, so please verify ahead of time - with me - that there is room for your child to make the most of their class time.

Thanks in advance for sharing my artwork with your friends and family,

Pages from my journal often include sketches done from life complimented with random lines of text. Nearly every page is also paint splattered - not always intentionally, I might add.....

You don't have to have an artistically inclined hair on your head in order to enjoy journalling.

My classes are an excuse to pick up the crayons and remember - without stress - what it was like to imagine the possibilities within a blank page.

And then you'll rediscover the joy of self expression - all in a private space where you make the rules. Including who you share your voice with.

(and yes, I do parties, for both kids and grownUPs)
