I have painted with acrylics since the early 1980s. I learned to mix custom colors to match my client's fabric or color scheme. What I was really relying on was my intuition as I had no formal training in mixing colors. I just trusted that it would work out and then there they were: anywhere from 4 to 12 custom acrylic pools of paint. Back then, I used discarded film containers to keep them from drying out. I painted hundreds of murals and border in homes and businesses and then moved on to license my designs for wallpaper, china, book illustration, fabric and paper products. Now, I happily paint on all sizes of canvas and board, much smaller than when I first started to use acrylic paints but just as fun and just as intuitive.
Art for Children and Whimsical Adults
I have always loved to paint art for children and people of any age who love a little lightness of being. From mural work in homes to illustrations for books, I love to draw and paint whimsies! Drawing fairies and spirits of the elements is also a favorite. I hope that you enjoy this collection.
