I took the plunge and left my office job 1 year ago now to follow my passion. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! When I'm not sketching and drawing, I also look after dogs during my workday. Can't get enough of them! My hobbies outside of this - I love making jewelry, camping and hiking when I get the chance!
I have always loved to draw and paint. I never considered to go into a full time art career at the time. Getting back to it as an adult it brought me so much happiness and fulfillment I decided to get serious about it. I have taken many classes and currently have professional artists as mentors for all my work, I am always looking to improve and learn new methods.
I use a variety of mediums, such as pastels, coloured pencils, oils and scratchboard. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
I paint all kinds of animals, not just dogs! I can also do wildlife and landscape commissions. I will make sure that it is perfect and portrays everything special just for you. (Portraits of people are going to be offered within the next year! - stay tuned)
