So Many Kitties!

Gingers and tuxedos, torties and tabbies, Siamese and Snowshoe, and lots of housepanthers, my collection of kitty cabochon pendants is inspired by the kitties who’ve shared my life. I’ve chosen paintings and portraits and sketches and photos and lots of different shapes and styles of frames, just as different as the kitties themselves. Above is […]

Summer Flowers Tiles

Warm mornings, bright afternoons, hot evenings. The first warm days are here and I’m ready for flowers. I made tiles out of some of my favorite flower paintings for you to enjoy, to use set down your iced tea or coffee, protect and decorate a countertop or hang on a wall like small paintings. Each […]

Stylish Recycling, “Tea for Tulips” Vintage Cigar Box Keepsake

These cigar boxes are the old-style cardboard type, the ones we probably all grew up with around the house, holding photos and hardware and handkerchiefs. As you would expect these boxes are gently worn, in varying states of wear and tear, written on, watermarked, with holes from thumbtacks and dinged up corners and warped lids, […]

Featured Artwork: Sleeping Beauty, a Turning Point ~ The Creative Cat

This sketch was the first time I looked at a scene, took in all the necessary details, visualized the finished work, and actually created what I had visualized on the paper, all because I loved my Sally and wanted to share that. Animals give us so much in everyday life, but my cats have given […]

If You Enjoy My Artwork, You’ll Enjoy My “Feline Style Sampler”

In autumn 2013 I created this little portfolio piece, Feline Style Sampler, sketches and portraits, to include in presentations to prospective illustration customers to both show a variety of styles of illustration and my ability to design a little book like this and have it printed and bound. I was very pleased with the way […]

Art in Place

One of the things I did today was to photograph urns and the business itself at Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation. The owner and I have become friends over the years, and we are also each others’ customers—I handle her website and public relations, and she is the person who receives my cats for cremation. She […]

April Nature Desktop Calendar: April Cloud Study

Once the weather turns warm and sunny the world begins coloring up nicely, and so it did one April afternoon. I decided to take some time to paint the clouds, literally and figuratively, standing out in my back yard with my pastel for about ten minutes—and by that time the skies were completely different. This […]

2010 Poetry Reading: Coming Spring

I like to occasionally feature one of my solo exhibits and/or poetry readings from the past 20 years; all of them are listed under my page of Exhibits. This poetry reading and art exhibit, from 2010, took place in February but featured the theme of change and rebirth and the coming of spring, and I’m […]

“That Green One in the Back” from “Lost My Marbles”

I had a great time photographing this bunch of marbles and took so many playing around with angles and focal depth. This image is focused on “that green one in the back”. I found this bunch of marbles in the soil of a yard where I lived years ago. None is valuable, but are all […]

Ginger Tabbies and Black Tabbies on “Tabbies Tiles”

I’ve had a thing for tiles lately. I like them for decoration, but they are also useful as coasters or a base to display something or even hang on the wall. I’ve had the idea of using my linoleum blocks for the “Tabbies” series to create some texture with the impression along with color. I […]
