New Zazzle Store Featuring Equus Tattoous!

I've had the privilege to have had my artwork represented through many different avenues throughout the years (including t-shirt designs, sculpture exhibits, commissioned portraits etc).
I'm happy to say that you can now purchase my artwork directly through our new Zazzle store:


In addition to clothing, there are many other items available (mugs, mousepads, IPhone and IPad covers, etc). We will be adding new items/new artwork all the time, including that by my husband and fellow artist Bill (www.partycartoons.com) so please check back frequently.  Zazzle offers a huge variety of products, so if you'd like to purchase a design featured on a different product, please let us know.

 "Equus Tattoous" is the first in a series of designs that are an homage to old-school tattoo style, combined with my love of all things "horsey." It was created using acrylic paint and inktense pencil.

We will be featuring a variety of art, including illustration, photography, mixed media, and digital artwork. Check it out!!!!! More to come . . .

Connecting With Pet Portraits

I recently created this pet portrait of two special little dogs; ink and watercolor pencils were the mediums I used. I was unable to deliver the final artwork to the owner; my husband graciously did in my place. He called me soon after presenting the portrait; the owner was so overjoyed he actually cried(!) It turns out one of the pups had recently passed away.  I was so glad to be able to create this special remembrance of his pets. They really do become part of the family, and we mourn their loss just as deeply.
