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.

Why don't you work on canvas? I don't want the expense of a frame

As I have stated before, I have done canvas paintings. However, I love working on paper. It allows me to achieve the looks and textures I want. I can't do the same on canvas. Plus, I am really more of a drawing artist, than a painter. My art can all be matted and framed with ready made frames without being custom framed.  You can also find old, beautiful vintage frames and use them with new matting. And most importantly, I try to keep my prices affordable.
