The Great Blue Heron is common throughout North America. They can thrive in diverse climates ranging from the frozen shorelines of Alaska to subtropic swamps and even deserts. They also have a diverse diet. Though mainly feasting on fish, they have been known to seek out frogs, turtles, salamanders and even gophers. I have been […]

Bee Aware 

I just recently learned that the U.S. has officially put the rusty patched bumblebee on the endangered species list. There are 46 different species of bumblebee in the United States. It would be most beneficial to prevent that number from decreasing! There are various ways to help our buzzing friends… Plant specific flowers that bumblebees […]

DeSoto: A Heart of Gold

It’s hard to say goodbye when someone has been at your side for ten years. On March 10th, I had to say goodbye to my greatest friend, DeSoto. He had been with me nearly his entire life. I received him from a friend of a friend when he was no more than a few months […]

Totem Animal: Pheasant

Totem Animal: Blue Jay

I feel as though when the universe has a message for us the animals bring it to our attention. They are messengers of the spirit realm while also being great teachers of life’s lessons. I have been relying heavily on them to guide me when I am feeling overwhelmed or aimless. Since the house fire, […]

Contrary Creatures

I have finally completed my second artwork of my equine/butterfly collection. This one is surrounded with innocence and curiosity. When I created my first piece, “Holifly“, I was intrigued by the natural acceptance these two diverse creatures shared with one another. This great majestic beast, capable of amazing feats of strength, mingles with a delicate flower […]

Where Dogs Play All Day!

Yesterday I took a couple more pieces to Muddy Paws Dog Care in Latham, NY. I now have five dog portraits displayed for sale there. It feels good to have my work out for the public to see when I’m not doing art shows. An artist’s work should not sit in the dark corner, collecting […]

Hearts & Hippocampus

I’ve completed my latest painting. I was commissioned to do a piece for a wedding gift of two seahorses in the shape of a heart. The newlyweds’ favorite colors are blue and orange, so this became the easy choice for the seahorses. The leaf in the corner is a little accent requested to highlight the […]
