    Watercolors

    I paint from nature using Windsor-Newton and other top brand pigments and paper. Most of my work is in watercolor, however sometimes I work in oil and acrylic.

    Pet Portraits

    My love of animals has found a wonderful expression in personalized pet portraits. It’s a joy to get to know each animal through the collaborative process.

    I work in watercolors and ink for my illustration work. Favorite selections can be seen in my book, below.
