As a painter, specializing in watercolor, colored pencil, oil painting, as well as pencil sketches, I create 2-D representations of realistic or impressionism. I specialize in animal portraits in general, because let’s face it, as the old saying goes, a pet is the only thing on earth who loves you more than you love yourself. In doing so, I use a photo provided by you and combine it with my knowledge of color, texture, perspective, space and other principles with a unique creative and technical ability to create an expressive, captivating, and powerful work of art. I work in my private studio in northern Virginia.
