Commissioned Art

Commissioned art works on canvas are always welcomed and make great gifts. I can utilize your own photographs, or research the subject, photograph as needed and combine views and memories in a unique work of art. Sizes and the amount of time needed to produce a work of art are nearly limitless, but on consultation a price range can be determined and agreed upon. Contact me for an idea of pricing on a commissioned art work.

As a professional artist, my ideas, depth of skill and style set her apart from her contemporaries. Landscapes and portraits of all kinds are the major emphasis of my diverse portfolio. I work primarily in acrylic paints, utilizing glazes and washes of color to achieve a glow and ethereal feeling. With my strong and diversified visual arts background, my work is well-studied, yet has an expressive and impressionistic style

I have been passionately drawing and painting since the age of five and have always continued learning new techniques and materials. I have more than 35 years of professional experience in interior design and fine art, and more than 20 years of professional experience producing high quality hand-painted murals, faux finishes, and decorative painting.  My interior design background serves as an incredible aid in deciding just the right style and colors to use to create your commissioned art. These beautiful pieces make a wonderful focal point for any interior. My work is represented in public and private collections primarily in the U.S.
