I am a self-taught artist, recently retired from my “pay the bills job”, who made a serious attempt at graphite drawing in 2006 at age 53. I have since done a few in color pencil.
I love drawing animals and children especially. Some of my work is available for sale as prints on this site. Commissions are welcome.
Thank you for visiting my page, and I would like to thank everybody who comments. I truly appreciate it.

    Great picture.Your attention for detail shows in her attention on what she is watching.Lee.

  • Thanks Lee, your comments are appreciated.
    Just got back from catching up and love the new elephant and the story that goes with it. You hang in there…your talent went unused far too long.

    beautiful work! That grass must have been painstaking!!

  • Thank you Simon. Yes, the background took much longer than the dog herself! I don’t normally do such an extensive background, but it’s what the client wanted and I think in this case was needed. It tells the story…

    Your drawings are outstanding, Marlene! No detail escapes your eye. Bailey looks like one happy dog!

  • Thanks Lesley. Bailey belongs to my husband’s cousin’s grandson. She LIVES to go hunting ducks. I’m glad I seem to have captured that.
