I am an artist based in Scottsdale AZ and Washington DC. My paintings are for sale on my website, and I take commissions. I use a lot of color. I enjoy painting portraits of people and animals and give them life. I also paint from photos, so if you have a special scene, person or pet, I would love to turn it into a work of fine art, either in oil, acrylic, charcoal, or watercolor. Specific works are also available in giclee prints upon request.
I was raised on a farm in the Clifton area of my native Washington DC. I paint mainly in my home studios, which are filled with music, mostly jazz and Spanish guitar. I am a past president of the McLean Rotary Club where I provided artwork, a collection of greeting cards and textile art to the Rotary Club District 7610. The net proceeds from their sale help to fund humanitarian projects through the MicheLo Project in Swaziland. I am a current member of the Rotary Club of Scottsdale North and the Arizona Artists Guild.
I love nature, animals, and color. I am inspired to paint images that will bring beauty to life on canvas, thus bringing that beauty inside our homes.
