" I was born, I paint." That's really enough about me, as far as I'm concerned, but I've been told that I'm wrong, so here goes.
 
I love portraits - any kind: people, animal, dolls, old, young, as long as it's a face, I'm compelled to get the likeness and make as beautiful a painting as I can. I was born, I paint - and I'm lucky to be able to do that. I'm always interested in seeing what you'd like me to paint for you and open to all kinds of commissions. If you want your portrait painted, let's talk!
 
I'm still being told that it's not enough biography, so here we go again.
 
I was born in Manhattan and lived there for only a year. We moved every twenty minutes, said our old family joke and because we often were in remote, dangerous places, my two constants were art and dolls. I painted my first portrait commission in Venezuela, Baby Jesus, for five dollars in fees. With which I bought a doll! So if you want yourself and a doll painted, I'd be thrilled to do that for you. Or if you have a favorite doll you want immortalized, I'm your woman! I love working on commission and try to make every painting not only a good likeness but a work of art that you'll be proud to display. 
 
Now, that's really enough. Let's art!
