** NOTE: I’m grateful to all of you who have purchased my art or inquired about my paintings and needle-felted miniature sculptures. While I adore creating art that is so meaningful to those who commission it, the demand for my work, particularly the labor-intensive “felties,” has risen to the point where I find myself with not enough time to follow and explore my own creative impulses, which is something every artist needs. 

For that reason, I’ve decided that, after filling my current orders, I will be limiting future commissions to a small number each year.
 And, in between creating art for others, I will be refreshing my spirit by following my own artistic whims wherever they might lead. Paintings of horses and street scenes? Felties of foxes and chipmunks? - In addition to dogs of course! ;-) Stay tuned, and we’ll both find out!

I offer my heartfelt thanks to all who have been so supportive of my work in the past, and I look forward to continuing to offer fresh and unique “one of a kind pieces” that will delight my animal-loving friends.

     I am an artist who is self-taught and have painted since childhood. I'm inspired by nature, its colors and textures and by all animals, but dogs in particular.  I feel my talent is "God-given", polished by much practice, discipline and dedication. My reward for working hard is creating art that touches people's hearts while doing what I love to do.

My involvement with dogs began when raising and showing conformation Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) as a hobby for almost 30 years. But since my interest lies more in painting dogs than breeding them, I am very happy to stay at home and paint the dogs I love. And, while we no longer show dogs, I still go to a few shows a year to connect with old friends and take lots of pictures of dogs that catch my eye in all breeds. I feel this allows me an edge to accurately portray each breed.

After perusing my site, please feel free to drop me a note with any questions or comments.
