Mostly self-taught, I embarked on my painting career after spending years as an award-winning graphic designer for the Long Island newspaper Newsday. When my career at the paper ended, my love for animals prompted me to create my own pet portrait web site in 2004. My work caught the eye of pet boutique owners in Virginia and New York and I was off and running.
Commissions started pouring in and in the past four years I have completed well over 200 pet portraits for a host of happily,very satisfied new clients and return commissions from my list of established customers.
In April 2008, I decided to expand my horizons and created my own daily painting blog in the hopes of submitting it to The Daily Painter’s site for acceptance. I was chosen in September 2008 and invited to join the site which features the daily work of over a hundred incredibly gifted artists.
Painting, for me, is a process that is always ongoing and changing. I'm getting to know my muse, elusive though she may be and hopefully myself. I don't enter competitions because I don't think they're good for me. I lose either way. If I win, I then have to win...again. If I lose or am not accepted, my confidence slumps. I don't have gallery representation because I'm not sure I want it. I don't have a long list of awards and I don't belong to any notable organizations or societies. I just like to paint.
Commissions welcomed for portraits, human or otherwise, still life, landscapes, your home, car, boat or whatever your heart desires.
