It is that time of year!


A little later than usual, but this year we are kicking off our first outdoor show this Saturday June 15th.

So if you are in the vacinity of Bayvillage, OH come see us at: 



Huntington Playhouse Dr


Saturday 10AM - 4PM


Come see some of my new pieces like 



Hope to see you there!

Here are some new illustions I have added to my portfolio and collection called Alphabet Soup.


N is for Newfoundland

While listening to clientele who view my alphabet art, I have discovered many are dog lovers! While I have offered A for Airedale and D for Dalmation, the letter N became a nice candidate for another cute dog!


This also worked for the letter T!


T is for Terrier and Teddy


The terrier with his teddy toy makes a great letter T!


But while reviewing the letter Q, I found that the letter in of itself was hard to come up with a candidate that lent to its shape. I had to find something alternative to a dog. Sigh.


Q is for Quail and Queen Anne's Lace


The Quail became the likely candidate! The Queen Anne's lace made the shape and center of the Q possible. 


The fun in doing these is the letters can be perceived especially when grouped with other letters of the alphabet. But if you like the animal and its whimsy you the letter does not have to be obvious.  Some of my letters are far more obvious while others are not which makes them even more saleable.


If you get the chance, check out my illustrated letters called Alphabet Soup listed under my portfolio.

Hope to get you to smile!





Happy 2019!

Wishing all of you a very happy new year!



While I am inspired to create a new illustration as above this season, I also love to illustrate around my two grandsons,

who are my joy.

It is the grandmother is me as I see the marvel of the season in their expressions and eyes.


So to all of you that come across my website and read my updates,

I wish you a very beautiful and happy holiday season!




My appologies!
