A Little About Me
It is in my nature to create and produce artwork. Creating oil paintings is my creative recipe for life. My ingredients include painting what I love, painting what fascinates me, and sometimes adding a dash of imagination to help produce my visual delight. I’m highly influenced by animals, people, trends, and traditions. I create my art in hopes that my audience will recognize I thoroughly embraced the soul or story of my subject.
Observing animals, and their structures has helped me become the artist I am today. My favorite thing to observe are my furry friends. My Mr. Mac was my, 17 year old, standard long haired dachshund that passed away on April 4, 2022. I truly loved Mr. Mac with all my heart. He was my muse, and best friend who has been known to be in my paintings throughout the years. Currently, I have a second muse named Macaboy who is also a dachshund. I very much enjoy creating paintings, videos, and photos of him. Please, see "Macaboy's Barking Adventures" for more information about Macaboy.
Hopefully, when you look at my paintings, you will see the dedication and passion I put into each piece. With all my paintings, I tend to work exclusively with oil paints on stretched canvas, but I have been known to switch to acrylic paints on special occasions. All custom paintings are created with oil paints.
I was born in New Mexico, but have lived in Delaware since I was two. I have a loving husband, two cats, a dog (Macaboy), and a daughter. My family, furry and human, are very important to me, and I'm grateful to have them in my life.
I believe my talent comes from both genetics and my training. I have art in my bloodline! My Grandma, Karlene Voepel, is an amazing artist, and her work is known throughout the state of Arizona. Karlene's Southwest art is worth checking out! In addition, I'm proud to have a sister, Amber Sargent, who is a photographer in Missouri. Also, I have been creating art since I was a young child. I graduated from The University of Delaware in 2004, and have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications with a concentration in Illustration.
I’m currently working as a freelance artist and influencer that sells custom pet paintings, original paintings, prints, and art merchandise. I appreciate you visiting my website, and please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with any questions.
