PAINTING MORE THAN JUST A LIKENESS...BY SEEING WITH MY HEART....
I work in watercolor and oil. I enjoy plein air, portraiture, and figure drawing as well.
I specialize in portraits of people and pets, done in oil, watercolor or charcoal.
I DO NOT use photoshop programs to create enhanced photos that simulate a painting. I proudly use the traditional means of hand drawing and painting and the result is an honest interpretation from fine art materials. I strive to get more than an acceptable similarity, but the unique character and nuances of the individual. A good portrait is a likeness that goes beneath the skin, a gesture and a look in the eyes that you recognize...
I approach both pets and people with the same earnest effort. Pets and children are usually less money only because they don't require glamorization and cosmetic alterations. People on the other hand, have their ideas about how they want to look, and I try to accommodate those wishes...Gentlemen, remember if you are surprising your gal, make sure you choose photos she likes! I will do my best to play up her best attributes. and heck, it is more personal and Cheaper than Diamonds!
For pets especially, I can work from your photos, or I can take the photos myself. I enjoy this opportunity to meet the subject. I try to capture the soul of the subject and convey the bond between pet and owner.
Since these are unique and one of kind, pricing is an individual thing. I do set a ceiling on a price so there are no surprises and I also guarantee your satisfaction. Please call for an estimate.

As an artist, my mission is to record moments in time with a deeper perspective, not a simple reflection as a photograph would replicate. I am am not the reporter with a camera, but the ARTIST with a brush.
