My Artwork on Hounds of Erie Winery’s Newest Cider Release!

Hounds of Erie Winery has released their newest cider featuring a┬ácommissioned poodle portrait I created for the label – what do you think?

Be sure to check them out on Facebook, and go give it a try if you live in the area!

A Work in Progress

I put together a video a while back of one of my drawings in progress (Melisandre from Game of Thrones). I plan to do more of these in the future; hopefully some from start to finish. It’s definitely interesting to see how a portrait comes together!

It’s Never Too Late

I’ve always loved art. I grew up drawing, painting, and reading art books. I took classes and visited galleries. I never planned to make a career of it, but I thought it would always be a part of my life.

Years later I realized I had lost my passion for it amidst the routine of daily life. After a marriage, career, and children, my days were so full I didn’t have much time for anything else. A few months ago, I decided to pick up a pencil and paintbrush again, and I have been honing my skills ever since. Art isn’t something you wait until you have time to do – you make the time.

I now create art for fun and do custom work by request. I don’t know if I will ever be a full time artist, but for now I’m happy to have it be a part of my life again. Everyone should have passion for something in their life, and it’s never too late to find it.
