I enjoy working with clients to create one-of-a-kind art that captures a mood or moment in time. Charcoal and pastel portraits are ideal for this. These are drawn quickly from life and the relaxed sittings are suitable for  all ages. 

Over the years, I've done countless portraits starting at my first studio at Peninsula Art Academy, then on site at outdoor shows like Yankee Peddler Festival and Art on the Green. I can even do quick five-minute painted sketches for corporate events. 

Although working from life produces the best results, I do use photos if sittings are not possible.  To discuss your ideas or to learn more, feel free to contact me at
