...it was apparent there might be a gift that had been bestowed upon me...
I was born and raised in Lansing Michigan. At the age of four, I began drawing from my story books copying the images on paper. My siblings and parents believed I had traced the images, so it was apparent there might be a gift that had been bestowed upon me to do art. That gift became more evident through the years. I won the art award in high school, and then went on to study art at Michigan State University. My area of emphasis was life drawing. During my studies at MSU, I was introduced to Interior Design which later became my passion and profession. I completed my degree in Colorado at Colorado Christian University, but then majored in business thinking it would later help me in both my art and design careers. I also attended the Art Students League of Denver and studied with Tony Ortega who has inspired my pastel work since.

Originals - Canvas - Paper
Original art come framed with museum-grade matting, conservation glass, & spacers. Originals are included in our online store, but because of their delicate nature, they can NOT be shipped. However, if you are interested in an original, give me a call. Originals can be picked up in Grand Lake, Colorado. Please note, the online size and price, includes the frame.
What is a Giclee (pronounced "zhee-KLAY")? Giclee is a beautiful rendering on canvas or paper. This process is usually done on an Epson press. A Giclee represents the art in such detail that it is hard to tell the difference between the original and the fine, museum-grade print. All of the art pieces that are represented in this gallery are available in Giclee canvas or papers and in a variety of different sizes.
Giclee Print Options:
Canvas is an image wrap with a depth of about 2 inches. This requires no frame and is done on museum-grade canvas.
Paper Giclee is UV coated, museum-grade paper, and perfect for a mat and frame. This is shipped rolled, in a tube.
