art and design

Watercolor painting done during a class. Simple. Soft. Complex.

My Story

I was very young when I first held a pencil, pen and brush. Textures, patterns and colors spoke to me all the time. This continues today and is key to the next art piece. Writing is another  art form and I use the written word to craft my latest story. Sometimes I mix the two by adding words in calligraphic form to an art piece. 


Art and Design, Creative Writing and Illustrating

Currently my medium of choice is acrylic paint. which I use on small, medium and large wooden luaun panels. I continue to offer commission work using various mediums. Your choice!


My Inspiration

Everyday there are people, places and things that inspire me and this is where I get the foundation for my next creative endeavor. I always find opportunities or they find me. 

the fine line with ART and writing



Portraits of people and/or pets, house designs each rendered in watercolor and colored pencil or graphite are my strong suit.  Calligraphy or lettering can be  interpreted to create a unique sign board or used along with art for a personalized work. Wall Art and Murals bring art to life in a BIG way. 

Copy writing  is another strong area I use with creative interpretation to bring a story to life.
