I have learned with practice that drawing is …an act of listening and seeing.

Drawing has been one of my passions for many years. When I am drawing, the rest of the world disappears and the subject I am drawing enters into a “conversation” with me. I simply have to maintain my focus and enjoy the process.

I often execute my drawings in pencil and charcoal. I also enjoy adding color to my drawings with pastels.

Each time I begin a new drawing or sketch, I am faced with the challenge of capturing the essence of my subject onto the paper. I have learned with practice, that drawing is not an act of will, but rather an act of listening and seeing.

Because of my love of dogs, cats and all animals, I find great pleasure in creating portraits of pets, both drawings and sculptures. I appreciate interacting with people and their animals, sharing each other’s lives and loves.

Years ago, Ani, my Black lab/Akida mix was my first inspiration. One day as she lay napping in my studio, I sketched her. Then, a small clay sculpture followed. Over time I did so many drawings and sculptures of her, she would sigh, get up and move to another spot when she saw me begin to work. A reluctant model!

Since that first inspiration from my muse, I have created drawings and sculptural portraits of dogs, and other animal companions. My customers tell me of the pleasure and comfort they get from having a portrait of their animal friend.
