I am a portrait artist who paints both traditionally (acrylic paint and ink on smooth canvas or wood) as well as digitally (on canvas or wood). My prior background is in website, logo and print design. This translated well to my beginnings as a digital portrait artist. A couple of years back I started to paint traditionally with acrylic paint and ink. I enjoy both processes. Digitally, I use professional software and equipment; I have designed and use my own set of digital brushes. Traditionally, I also use professional artist grade acrylic paint and ink as well as an excellent quality of canvas. The way I approach a portrait, whether traditional or digital is the same. The tools are a little bit different, and the finished pieces have varying degrees of difference depending on what i am using.
I am delighted when I have the opportunity to recreate the expressions captured by people and their pets from their photos.
In addition to commissioned portraits, I sell “ART SCARVES” based on my own artwork and some original traditionally hand painted pieces. I sell online as well as at “art shows” and “markets”.
My life is filled with horses, dogs, family and friends, continually providing the inspiration and focus for all that I do. I hope to fill these pages up with my interpretation of some of those captured experiences.
