I regret to announce Alora died 01/07/09
(though no longer in business, her site remains as a memorial...)

PEOPLE
Until recently the only people that I've painted have been illustrations for books or poems.
Although I've never felt that I had the neccessary talent for painting people,
I've started doing a few portraits and find the diversion entertaining.
Hope you enjoy viewing them.





This handsome portrait was done on a large (10x14") Art Tile which is slightly irregular in shape so is best displayed rather than installed.
More information can be found on the "Currently Available" page.


Native American Princess, done on a 10x14" tile as a companion piece to the Native American above.



Sisters



These are the grandchildren of my good friend Janis.
When I saw how happy he was to be holding his brand new brother I couldn't resist painting them and I found that as I painted I began to feel like I was part of this joyous occasion. Thank you.



A small plaque of my aunt Joan in loving celebration of her 80th birthday.



I don't know this lovely girl's name but she certainly seems proud of her young alpaca, doesn't she?
This was painted on an 8.5x6"oval porcelain plaque.



These two young men are brothers, Ryan and Morgan Haitsma.
The small round tile was glued to the front of a journal and the plaque is a bedroom door "push-plate".


Izza on 10" oval plaque.


If you would like to inquire about having a portrait painted, please send me a photo with your email. I will then let you know if I feel that I could do a good job for you. Thank you.
