About Me

My photo
I have loved drawing for as long as I can remember. When I was about four, my sister showed me how to draw stick figures and cats out of circles and triangles and I can recall how it thrilled me. In elementary school I spent more time drawing than studying (not such a good thing). The teachers often asked me to draw posters for their classes and I also won several art contests as a child. Unfortunately, I had many struggles growing up and as a result, my art skills were eventually forgotten. Then came children and family commitments and, until I met Larry in 1999, art was the last thing on my mind. As a result of his insistence, I made the decision to become serious as an artist. It's been an exciting journey and my only regret is not starting sooner!

This is a much better photo of this than what is shown on my website.


  1. Toni – Martha and I just love your website. We have spent long pleasant moments of reflection looking at your portraits.

    It’s hard to say which we like the best. I keep thinking it’s the one of Tommy, since I’ve seen the original and thought it really captured the essence of the rugged individual. But then again, I scrolled down your blog page and discovered the drawing of Kylia. Wow!

    Looking over your collection together just now, Martha and I have lots of favorites: the Doodles in color, Cecel, the Male Nude, Poppie, Cheyenne in pastel, and more.

    This is a really strong start. We can hardly wait to see where your work will go in the next few years.
