My artistic journey started in 2010 when I was looking for art resources for my children. I found a wonderful online ‘drawing’ community called Thinkdraw, where I discovered the joy of creating pictures. I suddenly saw everything with new eyes... it was incredibly exciting.

After several months on Thinkdraw, I started sketching with pencils, and then I purchased some soft pastels. By the time I’d finished my first painting, I was hooked. My fourth painting was a gift for a friend; a portrait of her daughter. The moment she saw the portrait was very special to both of us, and I knew then that this is what I was meant to do.

Since then, I have continued to be deeply moved by the intensely emotional responses with which my portraits are received. It is a joy to capture the essence of my subjects’ personalities, and to know that the resulting paintings will be treasured......

Sandra-How clever you are with your delightful portraits, animals and landscapes. The love you have for your work shines through. The shadows and highlights in "Enigma" are just beautiful.I can understand why your commissions were received with such intense emotion as you have captured such lovely warm expressions. Great work.Lyn
