Early Morning


I am so pleased that you have taken the time to stop for a visit in my World!


I have fallen in love with the style of "contemporary realism" - painting a subject and making it look like a photo. I find that it is a style that challenges me and enjoy that others like it also! I am doing a lot of florals but know that eventually I will branch out! It is very exciting for me to take what God has given me and apply it to His creation that speaks to me most! You can check on my progress periodically by accessing the "Gallery Collection" tab.

Are you interested in taking painting classes? I teach classes at my home studio - Tuesday morning and evening are mixed mediums; Tuesday afternoon is watercolor and Monday afternoon is oils. I can offer you instruction in oils, acrylics and watercolor. Call me or contact me by email!

Notecards and Refrigerator Art featuring my artwork are available.

Tiles, magnets, dishes, plates, etc. are some of the new surfaces I am painting on with Alcohol Inks! A joyous medium and SO colorful! Check them out!

I have added "Crown Jewels" - Christmas ornaments that are decorated from the inside with mica powders! SO lovely and every one an original! Check "Shop Online" for more information.

"Early Morn" was purchased by the Society of Decorative Painters 2009-2010 Board of Directors as a gift for outgoing President Nancy Genetti.

Happy Painting to you all!
