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!

Creating the dog portrait
Penny, Mixed Breed Dog Portrait in Pastel
Dog Portraits are popular with my collectors and none so much as my pastel paintings!
This 11" x 14" portrait is a good example of using a pastel medium called PanPastels and it is wielded much like a palette knife.
I love the loose effect that can be achieved!
Notice how I begin? I want those eyes looking at me while I work!
