A painting’s creation begins with a client’s story, which helps to develop the heart of the painting. As I listen to the narrative a drawing appears in my mind honoring the story being told. Soon a painting comes to life. A client’s involvement is inspiring and empowering. The completed painting honors the client story and enhances their lives. Painting has always been my first love, much before jewelry appeared in my creative life. Sometimes color, texture, and subject matter pass from jewelry to painting and back again. It is all art – my passion, my language. Pet portraits are my specialty. Meeting my furry or feathered subject is key to having their personality shine from the painting. Boats are also a favorite painting subject, especially wooden boats which seem warm and inviting. A boat in a hidden cove comes alive with the painted colors of summer. A spring garden is perfect for painting its rich colors, especially with a bee or spider in the mix!
Commissions usually take a month to two months to complete
