About me

Location United States
Introduction Unlike most people I did not start any artwork until I was in my 50's! I do not have any formal art training, so most of my work has been trial and error. Which sometimes makes the best Teacher! I first dabbled in oils but found that I did not like the smell of turpentine and all the cleanup! I tried Pen and Ink and also Graphite! I still use both of these mediums in some of my work. I moved on to Watercolor, which I really like, and then Colored Pencils, which is now my most favorite medium to work with. I am proud to say that I have earned my Signature Status with the Colored Pencil Society of America. Always wanting to try new mediums in my artwork, I found Pastel Pencils are the best medium for me to do my Pet Portraits. I do Accept Commissions.
Interests Art... especially Colored Pencil, Watercolor, Pastel, Pen & Ink!
Favorite Music My Father was an Opera Buff and I can recall as a child sitting on the floor listening to La Boheme, Tosca, and Carmen, just to name a few.. My Favorite piece is from Turandot. It is called "Nessum Dorma" or "Non Shall Sleep" sung by Pavarotti. If you get a chance, try to listen to this piece... It will knock your socks off!
