About Me

My photo
Murrieta, CA, United States
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a mixed media artist who lives in Murrieta, California. I work in acrylics, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and other water and drawing media. My main subjects are abstracts, abstract landscapes, florals and gardens, equine abstracts and dog portraits. I love to use color! I try to incorporate the three C's in all of my work - color, contrast and composition! Most of these paintings are for sale. Please check with me for availability and prices if not posted.

Tropical Expression Two


5x7 mixed media on paper. This really is this bright! That's one of the reasons I enjoy pastels so much - they are so vibrant. I use oil pastels on occasion; but they, in my opinion, don't pop off the page as must as soft pastels.

Thanks DJ! This one really came out so bright. I am sure people will think I "amped" it up with Photoshop - but I didn't! Pastels are just vibrant!
