NOTE: I’m grateful to all of you who have purchased my art or inquired about my paintings and needle-felted miniature sculptures. While I adore creating art that is so meaningful to those who commission it, the demand for my work, particularly the labor-intensive
“felties,” has risen to the point where I find myself with not
enough time to follow and explore my own creative impulses, which is something every artist needs.
For that reason, I’ve decided that, after filling my current orders, I will be limiting future commissions to a small number each
year. And, in between creating art for others, I will be refreshing my spirit by following my own artistic whims wherever they might lead. Paintings of horses and street scenes? Felties of foxes and
chipmunks? - In
addition to dogs of course! ;-) Stay tuned, and we’ll both find
I offer my heartfelt thanks to all who have been so supportive of my work in the past, and I look forward to continuing to offer fresh and unique “one of a kind pieces” that will delight my animal-loving friends.
I am an artist who is self-taught and have painted
since childhood. I'm inspired by nature, its colors
and textures and by all animals, but dogs in
particular. I feel my talent is
"God-given", polished by much practice,
discipline and dedication. My reward for working
hard is creating art that touches people's hearts
while doing what I love to do.
involvement with dogs began when raising and showing
conformation Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) as a
hobby for almost 30 years. But since my interest
lies more in painting dogs than breeding them, I am
very happy to stay at home and paint the dogs I
love. And, while we no longer show dogs, I still go
to a few shows a year to connect with old friends
and take lots of pictures of dogs that catch my eye
in all breeds. I feel this allows me an edge to
accurately portray each breed.
perusing my site, please feel free to drop
me a note
with any questions or comments.
