My Mission:
To inspire love for all life through beautiful images.

What I'm Creating:
I am currently working on creating 72 totem animal watercolor pencil drawings (16"×20" each).  My current work schedule has me able to complete 1 or 2 per month. As of February 2019, I've got 26 completed (12 aquatic, 12 mammals, and 2 avian).  I will complete 12 avian.  Then I will do 12 insects.  After the insects, I plan on creating 12 that are amphibian, reptile, and mollusk drawings.  The final set will be legendary creatures, such as the unicorn.

Each set of 12 will become a calendar, collectible cards, and children's books, as well as products being made of individual drawings.  All 72 original pieces will be 16"x20" (vertical) and in a 20"x24" black frame; with a white mat.  The long term goal with these 72 images is to use them into illustrate a totem animal book and an oracle card deck.  As images are completed, they will be added to the Totem Animal Project Collection on my website. 



In addition to the Totem Animal Project, I have fibromyalgia and sometimes create works related to my experience living with it, as well as creating pieces of subjects that inspire me.  Please see my website to view more of my work.

When you choose to support me, you will be charged the day you pledge and then on the 1st of each month until you cancel.  Example: You pledge $5 on Feb 20th.  You are charged $5 on Feb 20th and then another $5 on March 1st.  You will continue to be charged $5 on the first of the month until you cancel your patronage.  You may upgrade or downgrade your tier level at any time.  Please see Patreon documentation for how this works.

About Me:
I started extracurricular art training as a pre-teen at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, on Saturdays. As an adult, I have taken art classes at: UMass Boston and UMaine Augusta. I have a BA in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design from Bridgewater State College. After receiving my degree, I did some online instruction with Digital Tutors to brush up my Photoshop skills, plus learn Maya, Mudbox, and zBrush.
