About

In life and art I am inspired by nature, animals, and friends.

At the moment I am enjoying making pen portraits of animals, mostly people’s beloved pets. See the Gallery for examples of these and my other work. I also do oil paintings and murals, pen and pencil drawings, mosaics and restorations.
