When I am painting a likeness of you, the work is filled with my interpretation, feelings and colors, which are hardly ever in traditional flesh tones. I also draw with vibrant and positive energy because I really love trying to grasp an understanding of new subjects and art techniques.
Although I enjoy working in pastels, I am painting again with alkyds and acrylics. Acrylics are so much fun to use because of the additives you can use and it's new for me and I love experimenting.
I have been commissioned to take photos of singles, couples and sometimes families. I have taken photos in beautiful woods and we end up with very natural and tasteful photos in the soft, warm light of trees, plants and creeks. Clients often like to have a painting made from one of the photos I've taken. If you'd like to see my outdoor photos or paintings, please contact me and we can arrange a meeting.
