When I was only 3 years old I had already decided I wanted to be an Artist, and I would paint animals. I started using oils at 13 and in a few years I was painting portraits of horses for their owners. I now do commissions of horses, cats, dogs, and sometimes landscapes. I use Oil, Pastel, Colored Pencil, and Graphite. I mix mediums frequently, and often experiment. I compete in shows as often as I can, and recently WON First Place with a Graphite Portrait of a cat.
