Julie, 1993

I am a retired housepainter, and self-taught portrait artist. I admire all of the arts, including music and writing (see links below), but I am especially fascinated by painters who can capture the essence of their subjects in a portrait. I painted my first portrait in 1983, as a gift for one of my sisters, and until I retired, I didn't have a lot of free time to do more, especially since I have no training in art. The above samples represent maybe half of what I have done over the years, with a few landscape and still-life paintings thrown in, but now that I have the time, I hope to be painting more portraits of pets and children, as gifts, or as commissioned works. I paint portraits from photos sent to me as attachments, or in the mail. If you would like me to do a portrait, please text me at 201 406-3933, or use the e-mail address below. Thank you.
