My inability to find a beautiful and special note card to write “Thank You” notes prompted me to design and paint my own. My love of nature inspired the florals. (And life has inspired the rest.) Since I started painting the note cards, I have expanded my line of floral designs to include contemporary designs, Christmas cards, glassware, and hand-painted boxes, as well as Oils on Canvas.

My Oils come in a variety of sizes. The depth and intensity of color is achieved by layering various hues, tints, and shades of color.

Each canvas is prepared. Next, the underpainting is done. When the canvas is dry, I use various techniques to apply paint and texture. Again, when the canvas is dry, I start painting and glazing techniques. This process is repeated several times, until I feel the piece is finished.
