Womens Day

"Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer."–Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Happy International Women's Day! 

I’ve been a fan of Buffy for years and my favourite character is, of course, Spike. Since the show just reached its twentieth anniversary, why not paint a portrait of James Marsters for the sole purpose of staring at him for hours? 

Dont Cry
I’ve had these characters in mind for a long time: two figures of fantasies damaged by reality. I’ve yet to figure out their story.

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I'm an artist/illustrator trying to separate fantasy from reality...and not doing a very good job of it. I'm also a liberal, sex-positive, bisexual feminist with a paintbrush in one hand and a pen in the other (if not a glass or two of wine).
Hello, everyone!

A few months ago, I was contacted by a lovely poet named Rita Maria Martinez, who discovered my work through this very site. I received a number of messages from her while I was in Muskoka with my family and didn't get to respond until I got home a week later. Since then we have been exchanging emails about my artwork being the cover of her new book and behold!

It has been a joy to work with Rita and I am so grateful for this opportunity. Copies are available today through PayPal in the link above or you can also purchase a copy here

Thank you to Rita for the opportunity and thank you to all of my family, friends and followers for all the love and support. I feel so proud!
