Creating Art for my living is what I do!
Watch the artwork evolve and see how I juggle real life and creativity as a working artist!
Along with my Artist husband, Stephen Filarsky, we built our Art Studio from a 1910 house. Here, I specialize in fine art portraits of adults, children, horses and dogs in oils, watercolors, pastels and graphite.Join me on my blog as I work in my creative space and share life on my mini farm and studio with you!

Kids painting portraits
It is interesting to note that not one of my professors in college ever showed me how to paint a portrait. Either they did not know, or they were so locked into the fear factor of a university "what is art" wrath that I make a point now, of showing the ropes to anyone who wants to know!
The results are pretty amazing! And there is NOTHING better to a tween/teen's self esteem than creating a piece of art that goes far beyond what he or anyone else thought he/she could create! See the examples of these very first portraits!
