Ballet always makes me think of this soft delicate form and dance. I wanted to convey that in my piece. I choose soft vivid pastels to bring this piece to life and still hold the beauty and softness of ballet.
I love the sound of a violin.
I am not musically inclined but I don’t think you have to be to enjoy the lovely sound that a violinist creates from this instrument.
Capturing the soul of violins in this painting was what this piece is all about. They have so much more spirit and character and I used vivid colors to bring them to life.
Painted in soft pastels
Roses in Pastel
These roses are painted in soft pastels. The delicate petals and soft leaves behind drew me into this image. I captured the beauty and fragile nature of these flowers with many shades of pinks and reds.

Rhinoceros Watercolor Painting
This amazing animal is on the endangered species list. It would be a very sad day when it no longer exists. Rhinos are quite large tough looking beasts and this array of color adds a delicateness to an otherwise rugged animal.

Emu Painting in colored pencil
Emu’s are fun feather unusual birds. They have so much character in their faces and each one is a bit different from the other. I have always had a love for birds and couldn’t resist painting up this guy.
Polar bears are also endangered animals and its sad to see their habitats being destroyed. I can’t imagine an earth without these amazing animals.
I paint to bring attention to endangered wildlife and the struggles these animals have in their survival. Support endangered wildlife and lets help save them.
