Love at First Sight - Acrylic Painting
Ah, here we are--all DONE!! :D This was a very enjoyable piece to work on from start to finish. Some issues along the way, but that's art for ya. ;) Very pleased with how this piece came out and thanks so much to Carol for entrusting me to paint her lovely horses! I can't wait to send them off to their home.

Innocence - Scratchboard
Ah, the moment I've been waiting for--the FINISHED piece!! :D This one was a lot more work than I realized it would be from the start! No complaints, though, as it was an overall fun piece to work on. Very happy this little guy is done! He's going to Tabora Gallery after he's varnished, but prints will be available--just let me know if you want one! Enjoy!!

Grace - Scratchboard
YEAH!! Here we are! :D Just finished up this piece and I'm definitely pleased with it. Probably one of the most complicated scratchboards I've done to date. This one is off to Tabora Gallery once it's ready to go, but as always, prints will be available if you're interested (just let me know!). Hope you all enjoy!

WOO HOO!! All done! :D This was quite the enjoyable piece to work on and she turned out like I had hoped. Best of both worlds there! Hope you all enjoy her! She's off to Tabora Gallery once she's all varnished. Also, as with all my work, prints will be available if you want any!

Mischievous - Scratchboard

Woo hoo! Got this little guy DONE!! :D I've wanted to do a Pine Marten for a long time, so it was fun to be able to do this piece. This piece will be headed to Tabora Gallery once he's all varnished and ready to go! Hope you all enjoy him.

Check it out guys! The Out West Art Show put together a video for me for the upcoming show in March. I think it turned out rather fantastic. :) Have a look-see! 



In other news, I'm just plugging away at making more art. I'm currently working on a large Friesian scratchboard as well as a commissioned horse oil painting. You can check out my Facebook art page to see all the work-in-progress photos if you're interested. (Link below.)

Thanks guys!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
