I live in Vermont, my favorite place in all the world. It’s a place full of pastures and green mountains, farms and forest. It’s full of back-country dirt roads, deer, coyote, fox, raccoons, fisher cats, woodchucks, chipmunks, and hawks.

My artwork is at the center of me, and who I am. In recent years I have infused my artwork with humor, as I believe it gives people permission to focus on the joy of life, the positive, and the fun – all so important to our human perspective. I continue to do this, but my work is evolving too… as my artistic journey deepens, I wish to honor both chickens and other animals with my paintings. I strive to make my artwork the best it can be to represent them.
In the Studio
Sometimes I draw, hand-paint in watercolor, and adapt my work in Photoshop. Last year I also began using a beautiful new Cintiq drawing table, which allows me to paint directly on the screen. I absolutely adore it, and the flexibility and fun that it offers me. I love to create a lot of detail in my images, and this display allows me to really zoom in closely.
Painting right on the screen feels just like it does on paper. I get to use hundreds of different “brushes” depending on what effect I want to create.
So much fun…
