About the Artist

My passion for Art drives me to keep painting as well as the enjoyment I see on my client’s faces  when I deliver the finished painting.
Starting as a young child, I
drew pictures and painted every subject I could see. My Aunt Norma, a Toledo Artist, saw talent in me and provided the art supplies I needed. Her belief in me was life changing and so far I have produced over 300 paintings of homes in Monroe and across the country.

I take photos of homes and then draw them in pen and ink and top with watercolor.  Most are 16x20.
I never take deposits and my clients pay only if satisfied.  (I am quite proud of the fact that I have never had one turned down.)  I also paint various subjects from nature, most in acrylics.

You may reach me at or phone me at 734-243-6196.

I take orders by mailing a photo, by e-mailing a photo or I will take the photo myself.
Let me create a keepsake for you that can be handed down generation after generation.
