A self-taught traditional artist inspired by nature wildlife is my first passion to capture in my art. Wild animals are such a beautiful creation and I am dedicated to preserve them in my art. I love action with my subjects, horses running with wind in their manes or big cats on the prowl and lots of expression. Portraits of people and pet portraits are more of what I love to draw and paint.
My favorite mediums are graphite pencil, charcoal and watercolor with colored pencil on tonal papers the news medium added to my résumé. Exploring drawing on different papers has added new dimensions, always a quest for artist as myself.
I have had a love affair with animals since a small child, walking my neighbor’s dogs and walking to the Sunset stables as horses have always been close to my heart. To capture my subjects’ facial expressions and reach into those eyes, the soul of all living things is what I strive for. Now drawing people and adding humans to animal portraits is my new adventure in art.
I was raised in Los Angeles, drawing horses and dogs from about the age of five. I studied art and design in college and was a commercial artist for fifteen years. My favorite vacation places are the National parks; they are places to be close to nature. For nine years, I lived in the Pacific Northwest close to the habitat of many of these beautiful creatures. I recently moved back to Los Angeles where I can finally be a full time artist and this is my passion. My philosophy is — life is getting short enjoy your passions!
