This baby was my final "That's Not My Dog". The first time I painted her, I realized she was the wrong size, then I painted her again, thinking she looked just like her cute self. The owner came to pick her up and said "That's not my dog!". It really was. She went home, checked the photo she had e-mailed me. I could feel her face turning red. Anyway, this is "Roxy", and it is the right pet!
I am a native Texan. My lifelong passion has been painting any and everything, whether its a 2 x 3 inch miniature or a 14 foot wall mural. Somehow my passion
comes through the eyes of my lively personal pet portraits. I constantly continue my artistic journey
through studies with Texas artists, Kathleen Dello Stritto,
Elizabeth Locke and Carol Marine. A lot of my painting
inspiration comes from spending summers perfecting the
the art of the dazzling effects of New Mexico’s light and
its corresponding shadows from the spectacular and
inspiring landscapes of Georgia O’Keeffe Country to the
magical town of Taos and its surrounding vistas and
magnificent sunsets. My work can be found in Dallas at
Random in Inwood Village, Dallas, Texas and Rising, A Gallery, Dallas, Texas.
