As a Native of Denver, Co., I've been creating art for pleasure and for others who simply love art. I'm certain I can produce quality art, and work methodically and intensely to produce it in a timely manner at an affordable cost. As an artist I would love to paint all the landscape scenes in museums and zoos! Also, to continue publishing my art. In the past I've illustrated my husbands writing for 2 books (the most rewarding thing I've ever done as an artist). I've created countless portraits, wall murals, street art, miniature art, tattoos, t-shirts, flyers, & invites/greeting card designs. I'm most comfortable working free handed, but I do have a desire to animate my artwork as well. My style tends to lean toward colorful, bold and lots of detail. Thanks for looking!

The engineers and old technicians were excited to pass their experience to the young students and we created a future pool of candidates to the company. ?
