The Artist Says:

Pet Portraitry is what motivates me to paint. My paintings give pet owners healing power after the loss of their beloved soul mates.


I am a Maine native, currently residing in Auburn, Maine with my husband, 2 rescue dogs Joey and Lucy, and a pretty white cat named Snowball. Our son is in College, so we are empty nesters! 
After working in corporate for 21 yrs, and teaching pre-school for 8 yrs, I decided to pursue my passion full time; creating beautiful art for people. My talent is a gift which I enjoy sharing with everyone.  
I developed a love for painting on slate because of the aesthetic feel it gives my paintings.  Painting on glass has become another favorite of mine and they make great gifts for people.   
Working with people on custom orders is very rewarding. My artistic footprint has had me commissioned to do Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, fundraisers, glass paint parties, and even working with a famous NY city event planner!
Other favorite past times include shopping at flea markets, 2nd hand shops, and enjoying the great state of Maine with family and friends.
I was raised with good old fashioned Maine values and my work ethic is a true reflection of that.  All of my artwork is hand crafted with thoughtfulness, patience, and love so when you receive it, you know it comes from the heart. 
My artistic vision is my destiny in life and sharing it with people is what completes me!
