After years of adopting rescue dogs, I've been inspired to paint them, along with other pets...oh, and people, too!

My earliest art-related memory occurred in the first grade when a concerned Sister Therese sent me home with a note for my parents—along with my “detailed depiction” of Adam and Eve without benefit of fig leaves. I wish I had saved that drawing.

I went on to major in Fine Arts in college and pursued a career in Graphic Design. Since 1993 I have served as co-owner and creative director of Design III. When our business went virtual a few years ago there was more time to spend painting and now my portraits, landscapes, and still life works hang in numerous private collections across the country. 

I have found great satisfaction in capturing the true essence of my clients’ subjects in these unique portraits and I also support rescue groups across the country by donating portraits at fund raisers along with percentages of new commissions.
