Stone and Canvas Portraits

I am a self taught artist and began drawing from the time I could hold a pencil in my little fist and any blank surface was fair game.  I have always loved animals so they were the subject of all my drawings. I am still painting animals in the form of custom pet portraits in acrylics from photos on acrylic board and also, for something a little bit different – on river rocks. As well as custom painting of pets, I paint lots of different animals on these rocks such as dogs, cats, guinea pigs, turtles, penguins, owls, lambs, frogs .. anything. I also have little characters called "Funky Friends" that are popular with children.

My latest project is 3D resin art which is a process of gradually adding layers of resin and painting in acrylic on each layer to create art pieces with the perception of depth and realism.  These will be for sale at the City Hall markets.
