I am one of those individuals who, after retiring, picked up some paints and brushes and began a new endeavor to paint what I love most, animals and children. I've recently expanded that painting experience to birds , majestic landscapes, classic cars, and book illustrations. Since 2005, I have painted well over 300 portraits, landscapes and whimsical art pieces, also winning a number of awards in various juried art shows.
I absolutely love to paint and look forward to going to my studio loft every day to work on my projects. My medium of choice is acrylics and I am always finding new ways to use this medium and love the vibrant colors it gives me. My canvas of choice is board but also enjoy stretched canvas and canvas paper as other alternatives.
