Welcome to my Web page. This will give you a glimpse into my work

Painting has been a significant part of me...for most of my adult life. It has introduced me to some of my best friends, encouraged me to go to interesting places to sketch, taught me to "see" and "appreciate" the world through a painter's perspective, and given me hundreds of hours of pleasure and entertainment.

YOUR STORY

Tell the story of your special EVENT

...your wedding...retirement... family reunion...special birthday

in the most unique way.

I create a hand painted watercolour illustrated Journal of your event and leave room for your commentary. It is more personal than a photo album. A unique record of the whole wonderful event

Your journal book can be made with the artist painting on site during the event, or from photos of the event.

Prices vary. For an estimate Call or Email.

I have explored oils, acrylics and have recently settled on watercolour as my medium of choice. I just love the unpredictability as water, paint and paper meet. I love how it paints itself if you let it. It can be unforgiving and at the same time magical. I like painting landscapes, seascapes, buildings, flowers.

ARTful Journals

contact me for Next class

I have found keeping a “visual journal” to practice my watercolour skills and develop my sketching drawing skills. It also gives me an opportunity to “see” the places I travel to in a much deeper connection. These journal also are small, the watercolour trays portable and it is a great habit to develop Join us for a 2 day workshop.
