I have been painting commissioned pastel pet portraits since about 1995, plus numerous other subjects. I love animals, nature and all of God's creation and am always trying something new. I also enjoy photography, and a few years ago I started turning my paintings and photography into greeting cards. I was doing this mostly for personal use, but I soon people were asking to purchase them,
One of my newer mediums has been painting on metal buckets, tubs, and pails, etc. with latex house paint. I am gradually adding new cards, photography, and prints of some of my artwork, I am always honored and blessed when someone purchases a piece of art from me.
When I am not being creative, I am either studying up on art business, working with my Tennessee Walking Horse, gardening, or enjoying a quiet moment reading or on an adventure with my husband and our Dachshund Rembrandt.
