My Interests

Art: I am a painter, Bob Ross, Donna Dewberry or any other style you want. I have painted from peoples photos or dogs, cats, horses, people, flowers, gardens, etc. I will paint on anything including canvas, paper, glass, cans, walls, even Ostrich Eggs, etc., I also do your first painting for free! I can also design a painting of your choice, do the drawing and then paint it after drawing has been approved. I paint mostly in Acrylics. I volunteer teaching painting techniques to children ie., "Have Some More Fun" H=horizon, S=sky, M=mountains, F=front (everything in the front). A number of the paintings done by 6-8 yr. old made to Ontario Art Shows and one is on display in Victoria, BC. I also love to sew, design special creations, my granddaughters dress designs (she is 9 yrs. old), alterations, etc. The cost is variable and it goes to support spaying and neutering cats.
