Why do I enjoy creating home portraits? While I have been creating artwork most of my life, I started specializing in architectural and home portraiture almost 30 years ago. It all began when my husband started his own construction company and we couldn't afford someone else to do our publicity work. Since I was the fine artist in the family, the task fell to me. Fortunately, I liked to work in pen and ink with a color overlay and this suited our purposes very well.
I taught myself perspective drawing and then expanded into working with other builders, architects, and realtors. Along the way came commissions for gift portraits, publicity portraits, and family home histories. I began doing juried shows and had work in galleries…
