A quick mock- up would be created on Photoshop to get the basic layout and look of the client’s piece for approval before painting. Framing is available upon request. All artwork is hand signed and protected with a layer of varnish. Domestic and International shipping available with USPS at an extra charge. Local pick-up is also available.

A Love That Lasts Forever

32”x40”, Acrylic/Gold Leaf Foil/Mixed Media on Wrapped Canvas

Several images were given to me by my client to create this half abstract half realistic piece. The waterfall and foliage background was created with palette knives and rubber scrapers for some interesting layers and texture. Iridescent gold acrylic paint in the silhouette of the couple was used to convey a rich ethereal romance amidst the rough textures from the background. Bold red poppies in the foreground, shooting up from the bottom of the canvas offers a nice contrast, while the white marker outlines give it a modern clean crispness.  Finally, my special touch of metal leaf foiling (gold for this special piece) in some rough darker areas surrounding the silhouette of the couple.

Hollywood In The Theater

30”x40”, Acrylic on Wrapped Canvas

Client requested a realistic painting of three of his favorite film directors (Scorsese, Nolan, and Tarantino) seated in back of three of his favorite film actors (DiCaprio, Blanchett, and Jackson) in the client’s home theater. Several images were gathered from the Internet. I provided a small scale hand sketch of the layout and once approved, using the ratio grid system, drew everything out to proportion right onto the canvas. The clothing and props held by the actors in the painting were not real. I had to recreate them using models which I then photographed for reference.

The Parrots of Burbank

Acrylic on Metal Utility Box

In the Summer of 2021, I submitted my artwork for a commissioned project with nine other Artists who would be selected by a juried panel as part of the Burbank Beautification Program, to paint ten utility boxes on Burbank Blvd. (my neighborhood). Their theme was “A Moment In Time”. The idea behind my submission was “a moment in a pandemic”. My husband, Paul, and I recall a moment when life felt slow and serene, and we were in awe of all the noisy, green, parrots perched on the power lines above our backyard. To start the project, I first washed the box, then I primed all the sides with white primer. Once dry, I worked on blending the purple/pink/coral/yellow orange (my sunset colors) with a large sponge. I used painters tape to get crisp straight lines for the power tower, power lines, and Warner Bros. structure. Last, were the bright green parrots in a variety of sizes all around the box, indicating perspective. I added layers of green and yellow for their feathers. This is one of my favorite projects to date and is my first public work of art.
