Brides & Blue Ribbons

pencil sketch and digital paints 2009

Creating designs with blue ribbons is always a favorite of mine. Especially when creating brides. Once upon a time, when I didn't know how to paint I fell in love with a bride painting in a museum.

The bride portrait was lovely with blue ribbons blowing in the breeze against a white veil. I still love sketching and painting bride portraits.

About Me

My photo
I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
