About Me
I started drawing portraits of friends and family when I was in high school and continued into nursing school.  Between starting a career and raising a family, my artistic endeavors took different paths - play dough, fingerpainting and kid's crafts. Now that my children are grown, I have rediscovered my love of art, especially capturing expressions in portraits.  After hectic shifts as an ER nurse, drawing relaxes me and revives my positive outlook on life.  I am self taught.  I read a lot of how-to books and art magazines and then practice what I read.  I hope you enjoy my work.

I work on acid free Bristol board using graphite pencils ranging from HB to 9B. 
All portraits are sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging.
