a Gift? .........Why not ART?
I do everything from Oil Paintings and Charcoal/ Pastel Drawings
to Desktop Publishing and Web Design. I have been hired to do commissions
of peoples' houses and portraits to a favorite place visited. I
currently have openings for a couple of projects.
Email me to set
up a time to talk about your project. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Make a positive difference in others lives.
To create pieces of artwork
so compelling you just can not walk away from it.
To capture the spirit of life for everyone to enjoy.
A celebration of life through
the use of color and lines. A moment of time, a feeling, happenings,
living life. People may look at some pieces and think, oh it's
this place or that place and be done with it. Than most will look
at it and think I have been there, I have felt that way, or I need
to go there. Most will react with a lot of excitement and some may
go bla. What ever it may be and however people feel, they start to
talk and that to me is what art is about. How one relates to the pieces
and the conversation generated from it.
The artist shows the beauty of life, everything from the morning sunshine to the most vibrant sunset. Don’t be afraid to show the world your colorful thoughts. Don’t hold back your inner creative. The moment an artist turns her back to that, the world is a darker place. Let the world see the artist in you.
Sharing the art created is giving back to the community. It not only documents the daily life, it captures the purest of life/ a moment of time. It can either capture the artists emotion or there lack of it. There are good artists and bad artists. The point is that they are out there creating art.

Time to Paint:
- Any available free time I have.
- If I had to pick the best time of day - mornings and evenings are my favorites for the best lighting.
- Even when I am not "painting" I am thinking about the piece or pieces I am working on. How can improve it? What should the next color be? Where do I need to push and pull more? What size brush to use? are some of the questions that I run through during "non painting" times.
