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.

"Steffi," 5" x 7", commissioned portrait of a much loved and dearly missed Westie, acrylics on museum quality panel, private collection (THANK YOU!!). Inquiries may always come  to me.

Who would have thought the ratty doll I picked up at a flea market would elicit such great conversation?!

Does art HAVE to be comfortable or easy to look at?

Why are dolls creepy for so many and yet for others the keystone to a sentimental memory?

How does scale impact our comfort zone with respect to certain objects?

And most importantly, is she an evil talisman or just a sweet little thing?


And she needs a title, too. I'm drawing a complete and total blank. She must be sucking my brains out in my sleep......

Thanks so much for following along with my artwork!


This poster was created specifically to benefit the dancers at Broadway Dance Studio (where The Princess studies), and it features a beautiful full color reproduction of my painting "Dress Rehearsal." Proceeds from poster sales are earmarked for the team's trip to a Nationals Convention and Competition next year.

Order your copy by 5pm EST tomorrow and support the dreams of a young dancer!

Posters are 20" x 26" and will be shipped in a tube. They are $25 each, with S&H $15/order.


Thanks so much for helping these young dancers and supporting the arts in ALL it's forms!!
