Affordable ART for Small Spaces

FINE ART for SMALL SPACES                                                               

The Bouquet, Watercolor

With the current trend in downsizing comes a decrease in available wall space.  As a result, the art chosen for these walls must be size-appropriate while making a statement. In order to accommodate this trend, the majority of my artwork is 8.5.x11, 11 x 8.5,11 x 14 and 14 x 11 inches. The artwork can be framed in larger frames and/or grouped together for larger spaces.

AFFORDABLE ART
I strongly believe that everyone should be able to enjoy fine art in their homes and offices and as a result, I am offering my original drawings and paintings as affordable digital prints.
CUSTOM ART
If you would like a drawing or painting in your favorite colors, please contact me.

PENCIL PORTRAITS
Pencil Portraits are a specialty. Please contact me for details.
