A refocus on where my passions lie…..
After many years of working in the corporate world I wanted to get back in touch with who I am – who I have always been. I wanted to fill my world with the diverse sides of me and refocus where my passions lie.
My creative side has kept me busy when I had the time and energy to devote to it. I am an avid photographer of mostly landscapes and animals from all of my years of traveling. I am a self-taught artist who has taken the occasional art class over the years. I have been drawing all my life, mostly in ink, and ‘discovered’ my love of colored pencils a number of years ago.
I have always had a love of animals and began my colored pencil work from my own photos taken on my travels. I then incorporated my family pets as my art subjects and soon friends and family were asking me to draw their pets. Pet portraits were next in the natural progression and I cannot imagine anything else that is as rewarding as capturing the essence of someone’s best friend on paper to last a lifetime.
I have been doing local art shows the last few years showcasing my colored pencil art and things have really blossomed for me. Since following my passion in art, I am excited to be back doing work that nurtures my soul. Would love to talk with you, feel free to stop by my booth for a chat.
