My interest in art and visual beauty began as a child. I visited museums in New York City and around the USA. As time progressed, I learned how to create my own images in several art mediums, in particular, watercolors, oils, pastels, and pencils. Each medium has advantages that allowed me to create my own art. I have taken art classes from a variety of teachers in cities around the country and am now teaching art classes at the Galleria. Interacting with numerous artists with many amazing talents has introduced to me new and exciting visions of what creating art can mean. I will also create custom art from photographs sent to me, as well as custom human and pet portraits (or combined) in all mediums. I have many portraits of my own poodles and other family pets. I can provide examples of my work.
I paint in watercolors and oils and draw with graphite and colored pencils.
