I am a self-taught painter who works mainly in pastel.

Please visit my blog’ for a more complete collection of original paintings, many of which are still available.

I joined the daily painting movement on the web in September of 2006. As a result I have been creating small affordable pastel paintings ever since.
Although I paint daily, a work is not always completed each day. There are a few benefits to working on small daily paintings. The first is for myself as a painter. Since each painting takes less time than a large piece to complete, I feel freer to experiment and am constantly improving my skills. It also allows more art lovers to become collectors of original paintings since the prices are more affordable.

My work can be found in private collections throughout the United States and in Europe.

I am very interested in being commissioned for large food paintings and pet portraits!

I recently decided to add some of my favorite photographs to my collection here at Red Bubble. I hope you enjoy them!
