Meet the Artist

I have always loved art and have been painting since I was a teenager.   I am mostly self-taught but I have studied under many prominent artists throughout the years.   While raising a family, I put art on hold until my kids became adults.  If I wasn't painting, I was always doing something creative.  When I begin painting again later in life, people started requesting to buy my art!  I was so honored that they enjoyed my work and wanted to purchase my art. From there, I decided that I would become a full-time artist and do what I was always meant to do every day of my life!

I enjoy creating with oil and acrylic paints.   My clients provide me a 1-5 photos of any subject that they would like me to replicate.   We talk about what medium to use, size and frame choices.  I also enjoy photography and often capture my own images and work from those images.  I find my paintings more personal when I actually take the photography from a special place that I visited.  

Animals!  I adore animals and that is why I decided to focus mostly on pet portraiture!  Pets bring so much joy to the families that own them.   My painting style is realistic and detailed.   I try to capture the unique features of the pet so that I capture the likeness of the pet in the reference photo.  I know how special these portraits are because I have lost dogs and cats that I loved very much and miss them everyday. I am grateful that I have the ability to paint them so they can be near me everyday.   Pet portraits make such sentimental, meaningful gifts for anyone that loves pets their pets.   I find it rewarding to be capable of giving people this gift that will last forever.

I have been also busy working on custom shell art.  They make great pieces to brighten up a table or to keep jewelry in near bedside or any other trinkets.  They also make great place cards for any event!  Message me to discuss to customize them for your event.   Upcoming creations will include hand painted bottles that make great centerpieces for any table.  The sport bottles are great for Super Bowl parties or any other sporting events.  I can customize bottles for birthday parties, grand openings, or just about any thing!

I am constantly working on new paintings.  Check back often to view new pieces or join the mailing list to get updates.  If you have any questions about a customized piece, feel free to send me a message at or contact me at 203-942-0145 and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  

Thank you for checking out my website.   I hope you enjoyed viewing my work!

Capture Furry Loved Ones: Get a Pet Portrait Commission

I am excited to announce that I offer custom dog and cat portrait commissions online!  I replicate the image from a few high quality photos that you will email to me of your furry family member!  To get started, I ask that you send me approximately 2-5 shots of the pet you want painted.  I work primarily with oil paints.   The turn around time for oil paintings is approximately 2 months.

A commissioned painting of a family pet is one of the most unique, memorable gifts you can give someone.  It lasts a lifetime and it is a great way to memorialize a beloved family pet!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop me message via my email at or call me at 203-942-0145!  

Thank you!
