First and foremost, I'm a mother of 2 - that's always been my favourite and most important job. I worked for the same employer for almost 31 years - a fantastic job but I'm enjoying puttering and painting now instead. I started painting when I was about 40. Well, I painted a lot of walls in various homes prior to that, but that was the extent of it. I didn't enjoy art classes in school either, perhaps because they were too structured, but more likely because I would have rather been anywhere than in a classroom.
My sisters are all talented but I hadn't really given much thought to putting paint on canvas but I convinced my dad to come with me to a local art class and the rest is history.
I have a studio in my home now...actually, it's my dining room but it's full of paints, brushes, shelves and other art paraphernalia, so alas, no more family dinners in there until one of my kids moves out and I can scoop their room!
Generally, I paint dogs and cats but you'll see I paint other animals as well. I've included some in my
"Bosco" 16 x 16 inch canvas
All work is painted on gallery wrapped canvas which can be framed or left as-is for hanging. Canvas sizes vary. Prices start at $150.00. A great gift idea!
All pieces on the site have been created by me. Most are commissioned pieces but some are available. Please contact me via email or phone with any questions! :)
