Kenai – pastel in progress


I have created a new instagram account, please follow it for the most up to date information about what I’m working on!

I have a ton of projects on the list right now and I haven’t even started on Christmas stuff yet! I’m so excited. Dustin, my husband, remodeled a space for me to have my own studio and now I will be able to have time to get more accomplished. I’m hoping this website will get updated much more often now.

I still maintain my facebook page regularly and there is a contact form on this web site if anyone would like more information about a custom portrait or design work.


2016 zooms past unsuspecting artist


Well I’ve had a crazy year. Lots of ups and downs, but I’m hoping that sometime soon I will be able to refocus on some artwork and get this page more up to date and filled with new work.

I have been donating a lot of gift certificates this year and am enjoying working on new projects for different groups of people. If you have a cause or a fundraiser you’re looking to get donations for, please get in touch!

Happy New Year!

Well it’s a little late for that officially, but today I posted my first finished piece of 2016. I had a great big glut of work to do for Christmas commissions and I was so exited and happy with how well they were received.  I have a few gift certificates and commissions to finish up for the new year and then onto some creative projects that have been on the back burner. I have donated commission gift certificates to several fundraisers and I am excited to see how they do.

Looking forward to a bright 2016!


Whew! Just finished up my pastel experiment and I’m loving it! Prepare for more to come.

Currently I’m trying to wrap up the acrylic painting (to see the beginning look at previous post). It’s going well, but faces are hard some days!

Next up I have another acrylic equine portrait. It should be a fun one! Beautiful western Morgan stallion.

Also in the works is a new logo project and web site I hope to have done this winter. Maybe I should update my own farm site too… hmm!


Just finished the underpainting on this project. I have another acrylic horse portrait in the works. In between these I’m working on an ad for the Morgan Grand National program and gathering sketches for a logo project. Fun times! I just purchased a new pastel pencil set and I’m very excited to try it out! I have more projects than time right now but they are all fun!

8-15 update

Well with horse show season I’ve been so busy this blog has gotten neglected. I did finish the logo and colored pencil project I mentioned last time. Now I am elbows deep into a charcoal project that should get wrapped up this week. Then a couple canvasses are sketched up and ready for their first layers of paint. In June I was completely focused on the MHAO futurity booklet, an 80 page publication. Now that it is behind me I can play with more artsy things.
