Welcome to my website I invite you to take your time scrolling through and enjoying my paintings of portraits of people as well as pet portraits from clients in
Palm Beach, Seattle, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Wellington, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami as well as New York City.
Moving to Seattle the summer of 2022 has been a wonderful experience and am looking forward to being a part of the art scene in this vibrant city, while still being of service to my clients from South Florida and New York/New Jersey.
The website “Home”page shows oil portrait paintings of commissioned works that are now in international, private or corporate portraits collections. When you check out the “Portraits Page” – please scroll down to see the various sections. It divides into Oil Paintings of Men, Portrait Paintings of Women, Portraits of Children, Family Portraits, and Pet Portraits. The “Portrait of a Woman” Heading shows the four years of this famous event and the 23 oil portraits of the Honorees. On the “Gallery Page”, you will see oil paintings that are for sale.
It is fun being a portrait painting artist. : ) I make it clear to all my clients that they always have complete control over the process – from our first conversation to the final okay. I strive to capture that special smile, twinkle of an eye, and the unique turn of the head of my subject. And, as a client recently exclaimed –“I have no wrinkles!!” That is because I work with the anatomy of a face – the cheekbones, jawline, and head shape to capture the timeless essence of someone’s features.
Please feel free to call me with any ideas or questions you have! These paintings of portraits can display proudly on your wall – and in addition, can be made into large decorative murals, notecards, websites, business cards and even tile boxes.
A recent client wanted a life sized mural of Mickey Mantle for her husband’s office as a surprise – WOW! Her gift was a fabulous success – he totally loved it!! Another client had a giclee made of her husband’s pet portrait– and we made a 5’ x 3’ wall hanging over their dining room buffet. Another great surprise!!!
It has been my privilege to work with wonderful clients, both corporate and private, creating unique gifts honoring or showing a special love for another person.
New York, New Jersey, Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Wellington, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale, are some of the places I have exhibited.
While in New York City, I was a part of the art scene with my art studio at 41 Union Square. I was an active member of New York Artist Equity – and worked on Mayor Ed Koch’s portrait.
In Palm Beach County, Florida, I painted 23 woman community leaders who were honored at our four “Portrait of a Woman” Luncheons, which I founded and organized. $150,000 was raised for Quantum House, our chosen charity.
Capturing the soul of a person or pet has been my gift. My expertise is using color and all the tools that I have acquired over the many years of pursuing my craft as a portrait painting artist, as well as having studied under the tutelage of the most highly acclaimed international portrait artists. I have used this expertise for clients in Palm Beach, New York, New Jersey, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Wellington, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale.
Pet portraits are also a specialty of mine. I am a pet lover and the current owner of both a Boston terrier and a Tiger cat. Having raised rabbits, ducks, chicks, birds, Guinea pigs, and even fish — I have come to know and appreciate their special personalities. PS. I do love horses, but never got my pony!
Looking forward to hearing from you!!
