Thank you for visiting! I am an artist and independent small businesswoman, and appreciate your interest in my work.

I have organized my artwork by the subject matter: birds, seascapes, pets, stillifes, etc.  Some works might have several subjects, so if you don't find what you like, look around in other topic areas!  If you like my style, but cannot find exactly what you need, CONTACT ME.  I do work on commission in addition to the works you see here.



Original artwork in your home or office reflects your good taste, and now is more affordable than ever!
