I left behind a corporate career to pursue and explore my favorite hobby – painting. I am an artist specializing in “art for the young at heart”. While I started out painting landscapes and still life in oils, I found that I especially enjoy creating art that appeals to children (and many adults). The originals are painted in acrylics or oils, and the majority of my designs allow for personalization, which I complete digitally. Personalization may be a child’s name, or someone’s favorite phrase. When I was young, I remember the joy I felt seeing my name on a plaque, a mug or a key chain. There is just something about a child seeing their name that makes them feel special.
I greatly enjoy painting, and seeing a child’s (or adult’s) delight in the colorful images. One of my favorite words is “imagine”, because it is limitless. I hope to create imaginative art well into the future!
