I’ve been creating art my entire life, and while I’ve drawn and painted in all the standard mediums, soft core colored pencils are by far my favorite. So much so, that I decided to devote myself to becoming an expert in them. I work out of my home studio in Wilton, Connecticut primarily drawing commissioned portraits of pets and humans. My other work, which I occasionally exhibit at local art shows, usually focuses on wildlife and nature.
Colored pencil painting is a slow, meditative process. For me, so much of the joy is in the process itself–not just the finished product. On the other hand, art is a solitary endeavor, and sometimes I’d love nothing more than to share it or collaborate with others in some way. A few years ago, I began teaching adult students, and now I’m fortunate to do just that. My hope is to build a community of artists who thrive on this amazing medium.
