In my studio

New works in process
 Paintings and Ornaments

 This family portrait, in the process of being painted, is a Christmas gift for my customers grandparents.  Using her photo as inspiration, the image is painted with acrylics onto an 8x10 inch acid free, cold press paper to look like a Polaroid picture.

When composing the scene, I cropped her original image down to this size, and focused on the four family members.

I adore this picture of four brothers hanging out in a tree, and think it's going to be one of my favorites custom ornaments once finished. 

 Two best friends ~ sketched, outlined, painted and fired in my kiln.  It really is amazing how different glaze colors are once fired.

A baby boy crawling towards the camera, an image forever memorialized on an ornament.  I love the funny perspective and think this has to be another one of my favorites! 

This adorable ornament is a thank you gift for my husbands cousin and her husband, who let us stay in their gorgeous NYC apartment last Thanksgiving.  Well, my two babies will be home from college in a few hours (Yippeeeee!!!) so I need to get my act together.
