Artist. Creator. Visionary.

I always begin with a photograph.  I use a grid to best capture the scale and placement of objects I intend to paint, and sketch the basic shapes on to paper.  I then transfer the basic design to my Arches 300# Cold Pressed paper.  Sometimes when my painting is complete, it resembles the photograph, but I am noticing that as I become more experienced and confident as an artist, my paintings reflect how my artist's eye interprets the image.
