My Spring Collection was all about Florals, they liven any home they are put in. When I want to feel happy I always go to the easel and create flowers, so this year I found myself doing quite a few, and now they are ready for you.

This is what I call an early morning study. Each day when I walk into the studio I start the day with a study. I spend 10 or 15 minutes just painting what comes to mind and than I stop. This practice hones my skills and gets me ready for the rest of my day. … Continue reading A Study Of Iris
