Current Work: Animal Spirit Guide collection

The greatest gift animals can offer us is a direct link to the sacred. In the spiritual traditions of many indigenous cultures, animals are not only respected for their blessings of food, clothing, and shelter, but are also revered as great teachers, embodying the consciousness of Mother Earth and bringing messages and lessons from Spirit itself. 
This growing collection of Animal Spirit Guide paintings has become my main focus creatively. They speak directly to my Soul's Purpose and I hope they speak to you as well.  

I call this collection my "Mini's" because they are only 8" x 8" square! They are also painted on Ampersand Gessobord in a 1.5" deep cradle, no frame needed. Guardians of the sky world...

Past Work: Figures, flora & fauna

Portraits and figures were my first big love as I took my initial steps into the craft of oil painting almost 20 years ago. Inspired greatly by John Singer Sargent and the like, the figures tell their stories in quiet moments and reflective glances. Those stories grew to include animals, beloved pets, and even flowers. Only a few of these originals are still available for purchase!
