I am a painter, illustrator and graphic designer living in glorious Maine. I work in many different styles and mediums—acrylics, watercolor, oil, pen and ink, pencil, digital and any combination thereof. My art is colorful and unique and often infused with humor. I love to draw and paint animals, people, nature and whatever else catches my imagination. I am continuously working on ideas, sketches, paintings and illustrations.


I love the great outdoors, reading, music and animals!! I am both inspired by and constantly amused by animals—especially dogs, goats, chickens and seagulls. I have an affinity for dogs and I like to have my dog, Mr. Gus by my side during all my adventures…

him leftovers from our supper—hotdogs

and French fries! ...poor Booger!
