Yea sure! Add something else on my plate! ;)

Design, dogs, fun

I am one of those people who like to do everything creative! My brain swirls with ideas! I can’t sit still and have to be doing something whether it be sewing up some new bag designs, creating some t shirt art design to even cooking!

Now I have added another fun thing which I have not done in ages! I am first and foremost an artist. I took every art class available in High School. Art Classes in College and then my first job was being an Illustrator for an automotive design company in Michigan.

Many of my co-workers would ask me to draw their kids and pets. I was into using color pencils and graphite pencils.  Then over the years got into working with clay and then sewing which then became my business.

A few months ago I dug out an unused canvas that was buried in our garage. I thought, “Yea I am gonna start painting!”. I started with one of my favorite subjects. My dogs and chose my number one boy, Finn!

After drawing him onto the canvas, I bought a box set of acrylic paints from our local art supply store and began to paint. I was clumsy and it was very awkward at first. Being use to working with lead pencils back in the day, the paint brush was uncomfortable. I got over it pretty quick and these are my first 3 creations! Ready to buy some more canvas and get to it!! I like to use fun image close ups!

  1. Wow- these paintings look absolutely FANTASTIC! Great job! And your bulldog portrait is pretty cool as well! I paint a little bit here and there, but painting dogs is definitely not one of my skills– yours look super realistic. Great job.
