A little about me
Was working a lot of dead end office jobs. I liked art in school so took a couple of college art classes. Wanted to learn more about oil painting and portraiture. Found an amazing yet peculiar master painter in the yellow pages (the real paper book back in the 90s). I took private lessons with Artist Joshua Graham in his messy basement studio. (like most artists we like all of our stuff around us) He taught me everything I know about drawing, painting and portraiture. He has passed away but remains alive in all of my work. I hear his words of wisdom while I paint. “Hurry up and slow down.” “Put the brush down, step back and look.” “The light describes the dark and the dark describes the light.” “Do you have a check for me today?”(ha ha JK)
I was lucky to take surface design, faux finishing, Venetian plaster, marbleizing and wood graining classes from the late Sandra Kiss London of Faux Like a Pro. She was an amazing instructor and person. She is missed by all who knew her.
I honed my mural skills painting murals and faux finishes for Jordan’s Furniture. My client’s and I work together to create one of a kind art pieces. From a hand -painted large-scale mural for Jordan’s Furniture showroom to a sweet quote over a crib in a residential nursery, Over the past couple of years “Live Event Painting” has become another service I offer. I am an official “Wedding Painter”. Painting at weddings, private parties, and corporate events, guests watch as the painting unfolds capturing the feel and life of the moment.
I have been blessed to be able to work with incredible, clients, designers, contractors teachers and students. I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way.
My longtime boyfriend/companion/rock John Kelly creates amazing furniture and has designed unique pieces. We’ve even collaborated on a couple of projects without killing each other. You may view his work at www.jpkwoodworking.com and www.americanflagboxmaker.com
Clancy has been along for the ride hanging out with me in my studio and with John in his wood shop. I love what I do and I make others happy in the process. What more could I ask for… .
