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.

Sweetpea, A Painted Sketch

"Sweetpea," nearly 5" x 4" roughly centered on an 8" x 10" paper, a commissioned sketch done in paint, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries may come to me.


Sweetpea is a doll, isn't she?

She's a rescued chihuahua-doxie mix with quite the personality. She skitters in lieu of walking and is rather clumsy, yet endearing. She can launch herself onto the couch after lapping the family room to get up speed. And she loves drive by face slurps.

And soaking up a little sunshine, too.

I'm looking forward to hearing the reaction from Sweetpea's Dad when he opens his birthday gift,


The Princess has some sort of virus and has been hanging with me in the studio instead of going to school.

Today we worked together on Carla Sonheim's Silly5 Class, an online workshop that tied up today but I hadn't even had a chance to start (and you can still sign up and participate, so have at it!).

We sipped tea and got all giggley over making blind contour drawings and making up silly vocabulary words (chapoosa = breakfast burrito).

Sick days weren't this much fun when I was a kid.
