The Charles Series

I have been drawing Charles for a lifetime. This little boy stole my heart with his smile and soul. I photographed Charles countless times when he was 8 or 9 for a children's book I was illustrating. 30 years later, I am still inspired by the photographs of Charles, continually producing new work of this wonderful little boy. As Charles grew up his life got hard. He was in and out of prison for many years but I am so happy to report he is living a free and happy life with his new beautiful wife!. Thank you Charles and good luck.


Portraits in Pastel

I'm occasionally inspired by other people besides Charles!! Or paid to be inspired! This is a collection of some of my pastel portraits. BTW: I would love to do your portrait! Contact me for pricing.
