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!

Bridal portrait in progress
Creating a bridal portrait in oil is nothing new for me. Creating portraits from very old photos (even tintypes) is not new for me. But to create a bridal from 50 year old photographs is!
In this 24 x 36 oil portrait, the client asked me to use her husband's face from another photos...which I have roughed in. There were numerous small changes to make from the original photos and all very do-able.
At this stage the client has seen it and loves it and I must confess to being relieved as showing a partially completed portrait is always an "iffy" prospect!
