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.

Come Journal With Me !!

Detail from an in-process zentangle spread in my journal
This Sunday - and next - I'm teaching 2 sessions of Creative Journalling for kids.

11-12:30 and 1-2:30, both at Little Monsters Toy Store in Downtown Lake Orion (give yourself a little extra time to ogle the construction equipment). Classes are $15 each and include all supplies but your child's journal.

This week's lesson is called "Follow the Leader" - participants will use a variety of supplies and symbols in a multi-step process to create a Leader Zentangle like the one pictured above.

We've also got plans to make portraits - pets, dragons, or self-portraits, whatever the artist deems most appropriate - using collage, stencils, homemade stamps and 3D elements.

I have a few spaces remaining in each class - please email me prior and confirm there's room for your child to spread their creative wings.

Thanks for sharing my artwork with your friends and family,

grownUP Journalling

Third Thursdays at Little Monsters Toy Store, 6-8pm.

That's where you'll find the wicked cool grownUPs, scribbling away, bringing doodles to life.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, May 19th.

Next class will focus on layers - adding sketches, contour drawings, and other elements overtop a color ground.

Wanna join us? let me know!

Painting Workshop

Mark your calendars for a Saturday, June 11th all day painting workshop with me, here in Lake Orion (Michigan). We'll focus on mixing color - not mud - and saying more with fewer brushstrokes.

Details to come!
