Hey!
You've landed on my Patreon page! WOOT!

So who am I?
I'm a sculptrix of highly detailed and painted birds from wood, a flat artist of realistic pastel and graphite animals and birds, an author, and instructor who used to teach from my studio, or by invitation at other venues. Traveling is such a hassle, now, and no amount of wine and chocolate can make up for it. But I still love to teach. Seeing the lightbulb go on for a fellow artist is the ultimate. 

I've written a 256 page how-to book on sculpting birds from wood, called "Carving Award-Winning Songbirds", published by Fox Chapel Publishing (now in its third printing), contributed (27) painted illustrations to a four book series of reference for artists on birds of prey, by Denny Rogers, also published by Fox Chapel Publishing, and have contributed numerous articles on painting, and techniques to magazines.

I'm here, because circumstances have made it necessary that I work from home. Teaching and sharing my art is the logical choice! I'll reciprocate your support by making a new  pastel or graphite drawing instructional videos for you (including the line art and sometimes the reference photo, if possible), so you can follow along. This is my way of paying it forward for your patronage - giving back to you and others by sharing my knowledge.  

It's going to be a blast doing this. I love to teach, and make folks laugh. So, pull up your chair, grab your favorite beverage, and your art supplies, and get ready. Expect a visit from my companion, Absurdity, now and again, as well. She tends to be a bit of a stalker, so if you hear a crashing sound in any videos, it's her fault. She made me fall off my chair.
