Collectors Say:


"Oh, my loves!  They look so beautiful and peaceful.  I couldn’t imagine any modifications – you captured them beautifully.  You are so talented, thank you so much for the obvious care and attention you’ve put in.  I’ve never commissioned anything like this before and you’ve made the process amazing.  I could go on and on, but in summary THANK YOU!"
 
"After seeing the latest examples of your art work I could not find words to describe how beautiful and deep they were.   I've seen portraits on the tv program "antiques roadshow" of people from back before the invention of the camera.  These may be priceless today but they seem so cold and flat compared to your work."
 
"I wish you could have heard the gasp, oh and ahhs from my Mom when I showed her the picture you did of my Dad.  My other friend Diane was visiting Mom and she was very impressed, and said wow, that is really pro.  What a treasure this piece will be to me.  You have captured my Dad's gentle, kind and loving side in this picture, something that when he had to work so hard, for so long, he lost at times, until a few years before he passed.  I cherish those times when I saw his gentleness, the vulnerability of this world traveler and businessman shining through.  Thank you so much for doing this for me.  I know if my Dad were here, he'd say "I like it", too."

She had asthma as a young child and remembers many nights with vaporizers and rubs—before the advanced medicines we have now.  She also recalls using these times to create fantastic worlds and internal musings.  This is where her initial experience with abstract art began—seeing designs, figures, faces and lights on the walls or across closed eyelids in the dark.
 
INFLUENCES
Within Klink’s family, her father was an excellent artist but he never pursued it—only as a hobby during his stint in the army.  Her sister is an excellent water colorist and often gives her advice on her compositions.  Other than the comic books, her first [...]
