Here are a few pictures of my art pieces in room settings using wall art visualizer apps. Let me know if you are interested in purchasing any of these pieces.
These are some works that I recently matted. They are all in 11″ x 14″ mats which fit into a standard frame. Instant original art! I work out ideas and experiment with materials on watercolor or drawing paper. I will give you a good deal if you are looking for art for yourself or aContinue reading “Works on paper ready for frames”

Each paintingContinue reading “Botanicals”
I’ve been revisiting figure drawing this fall by attending sessions with live models. Working from the figure has always been a good challenge. I’m trying both drawing and painting medias. All of these images are from long poses and some are focused on portraiture.

After taking some time off from updating this blog, I’m now working to add content on a regular basis. Stay tuned for more information about my artwork and adult classes I will be teaching soon.
