About

I have been creating art in one form or another since I was six years old. My dad's best friend still carries a drawing I did of him at my eight birthday party. I'm really only happy when I'm painting and my husband will tell you I get crabby if I am separated from my paints for too long. I have embraced oil paint as my medium although I love the buttery textures of soft pastel too. But oil paintings are so easy to care for and they ship nicely too.

I have been lucky enough to make a living doing what I love for a number of years now and I enjoy sharing my work with others. I'm always happy to quote custom work, whether it's a pet portrait, a family portrait or even a portrait of a house. I've got tons of happy customers and I like to keep them happy so feel free to convo me about a custom piece. :)

I am a member of the Portrait Society of America, The Black Swamp Art Guild, The Toledo Artist's Club, and the Ohio Plein Air Society. My oil and pastel paintings hang in collections throughout the United States, Australia, Great Britain, Japan, France, Italy and Canada. I am happy to quote custom commissions and I am accepting reservations for spring wedding paintings now. These are extremely popular and involve setting up on site, painting the scene plein air and adding the couple as they take their vows. Prints can be made for additional cost. Convo me for pricing on these unique paintings that will be treasured always.
