I have been drawing since I was a kid. Of course, back then I was all about horses! They were my favorite animal (and still are) and I love creating art that shows the heart of the creature. I started with pencil drawings and then pen and ink. I moved into pastels and that turned into one of my favorite mediums. I love the detail I can get. I started experimenting with watercolor on Yupo a few years ago. Yupo is waterproof paper so the paint sits on top and the colors blend in unexpected ways. I started painting on old rusty pieces of metal and found another new love. Searching the country side for old pieces has turned into an adventure.


I hope you enjoy my art!
