Original Artwork capturing the Apples of your Eye!
After retiring in 2016, I started enjoying the things I had always loved to do in my spare time: playing with my grandkids, cooking creatively, writing, performing in community theater, spending time with family and friends, and (of course) painting.
I am a lifelong resident of Santa Barbara, California, and I am proud to call this warm community home.
I love to create unique memories of clients' most cherished people, places or fur babies in their favorite settings, with their favorite toys, or doing their favorite things. I find such joy in what I do, and am blessed to finally have the time to do it. I am a proud and active member of the Santa Barbara Art Association (SBAA), the Goleta Valley Art Association (GVAA), the Santa Barbara Visual Artists (SBVA) and Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment (SCAPE).
I specialize in acrylics, mixed media, encaustic and watercolor, and I will gladly combine some of your special images of settings and subjects into a whimsical, deeply meaningful piece.
Prices vary, depending on size and complexity desired. I can even paint on rocks (or other inanimate objects) for those with limited wall space, and I can work with most budgets. (See my Pebble Pets page for some examples.)
Limited (10 or less per original) giclee prints (very high definition reproductions) are available on canvas or paper for some of my original, sold or unavailable pieces, and can be created from your original commissioned pieces as well (on canvas or paper only) to give to your other loved ones as a priceless gift. The prices on giclees are greatly reduced from the cost of the original artwork, and is an economical way to own (or give) a very limited print of an original piece of art.
