I'm a professional animal/wildlife artist specializing in acrylic paintings and life-like gourd sculpture. My preferred style is whimsical photo-realism, everything you see in my gallery are artworks. *** I DO NOT UPLOAD PHOTOGRAPHS (it prevents confusion ;))*** I accept commissions so you can have a special artwork that can be enjoyed for generations. I only use the highest quality paints and surfaces. Along with acrylics I also use colored pencil, graphite, and ink. Check out my website and Gourd Blogs!

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 5, 2015, 1:23 PM
Hiya everybody! Updating my journal, it's been a while.

Hope you've been productive and enjoying life! I've been keeping myself busy as always sculpting and painting. Seems like 2015 for me is all about getting gourdie (sounds like a disease lol). I've been making gourd sculptures and will continue to do so with big and exciting festivals coming up later this year. I'm experimenting and trying new techniques, like making more realistic birds, my first fish, and a mountain of beetles for "BugFest 2015" in Raleigh NC. So much to do, so little time!

I'm also painting a few things in-between - a few commissions, illustrating a novel, and planning for paintings I'll be doing in 2016. Personally I'd rather be painting but I'm starting to enjoy sculpting just as much now. I have a huge one-woman show scheduled for Fall 2016 so next year I'll be getting my rear in gear with new and creative ideas for that! I'm pulling away from static animal portraits to follow a more creative anthropomorphized route. 

Speaking of illustrating, if you haven't checked out my fully illustrated picture book "Improbable...Never Impossible" please do! I made an animated Youtube trailer for it >>> youtu.be/IOvPhy3YKS4
Improbable...Never Impossible Children's Book! by ART-fromthe-HEART


And I'm exploring more sculpting ideas and techniques I've started showing how that's done too. If you'd like to see how I sculpt realistic feathers on a gourd owl, take a peek on Youtube! >>> youtu.be/B92QoUa3WQI

I really do wish you all well, your support keeps me going! Thanks for reading, looking, watching and commenting. :love:
