I am what you would call a "creative". Born in 1955, as a child I was always making things. I learned to sew and made clothes, quilts, home decor. I've done stenciling, macrame, calligraphy, embroidery, rosemaling. I've made jewelry, stained glass, wood shorebird decoys. I've painted on silk, leather, wood and metal. I've worked with oils, acrylics, and watercolors.
Now I've turned my attention to oil painting. I'm getting my education from artists online that are teaching art to others. My style lands somewhere between photo realism and a more loose "painterly" style.
I find oil painting very relaxing and I hope to get better and better pursuing my painting adventures! I hope you like my work as much as I liked making it!
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My favorite artists are: Grandma Moses (because she started painting late in life, like me) Marjolien Bastin (I love her birds) Bob Timberlake (I love his rustic landscapes) Andrew Tischler ( because of his gorgeous realistic landscapes of New Zealand). My grandfather, father and uncles love of sailing inspired my love of sailing and sailboats. My lifetime love and ownership of dogs and cats inspired my pet portraits.
