Join me on my journey as I create visual art in various media including acrylic, pastel, pencil, watercolor, and mixed media as well as ceramics and needle felting. I am also writing and illustrating a children's picture storybook. Regardless of the medium, my subject is nearly always animals!

Mary Crawford - the pencil stage
I've started another Jane Austen cat. This one is Mary Crawford from "Mansfield Park." At this stage, the pencil drawing is nearly complete. The challenge is that putting them in human clothes changes the shape of the body and, in this case, of the shoulders and upper arms. It's a bit disturbing, and I suppose it takes a lot of practice to get it right.
