I remember doing special projects for people as far back as high school and feeling so proud that someone would not only trust me with their vision for the thing that they wanted to be created, but that they would give me money to do it.
Most of my artistic life has been spent as a painter using oils and more recently acrylics. Three years ago I became a potter which has been a never ending journey into various techniques for making and glazing. In addition to these areas of experience, I have often been called up to expand my repertoire and create pieces in media that I have little experience with which is especially fun.
My "People on the Couch" series of paintings is always a unique adventure as I create them from a customers candid snapshots of themselves and/or loved ones on the couch.
|I love this painting from a 1960's family snapshot|
This one was created without any people in it from a series of snapshots of family pets and favorite items for a special Graduation couch picture.
