I am a trained musician and a seasoned artist. I studied and performed professionally for many years and my creativity flowed into the art arena about 12 years ago. Since then, I have been commissioned to do pet portraits and my work has been shown in some local stores. I am a published author, illustrator and composer.
Recently retired from teaching in the public schools much of my energy goes into being creative. I have three grown children and three dogs that have all been rescued. I often take a percentage of my proceeds to donate to the ASPCA or a greyhound group. When you look into the eyes of your pet, you can see their soul and I pride myself on being able to express their personalities in my pet portraits.
