3 Whales Swimming in the Atlantic Ocean

A fresh and free flowing illustration created using acrylic, india ink and varnish on acid and lignin free matte fine art paper… I used a special varnish technique on this illustration that makes the whales and their respective tail fins pop off the matte paper.

School of Fish Illustration

Just swimming in the sea…

School of Fish was created in late October 2009 with Windsor and Newton watercolour, Prismacolor Verithin coloured pencils, Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (india ink) and Pilot Hi-tec C pens on Arches watercolour paper. All materials used are archival.

They are the Sultry Seahorse’s posse!

This original artwork measures 8×10 inches (20,5cm by 25,3cm) with a small white border around it making it easy to frame and mat.

The original School of Fish illustration is listed for sale in my Art Shop. Limited Edition Prints will be available in the coming weeks.

I have been decorating, giving as gifts and selling little miniature boxes for over 15 years. When I think about that, it makes me smile. It feels good to know that I can stick with something!

There is only one thing that has stayed with me through sickness and health and that is the gift of art; the urge to continue creating unique little insane one of a kind treasures. Or in this case, a little box to hold your secrets.

Box Dimensions – 1 1/2″H by 2 1/8″W or H-3.8cm by W-5.4cm

Moody Blue

This rounded unique maple wood turned box has been gessoed, sanded, meticulously decorated with India ink and artist quality acrylic, rubbed with a honey colored stain inside and out then varnished three times for durability.

Moody Blue is signed on it’s bottom.

Ever wonder what a tree would look like without leaves on one side. The dieing foliage on this tree faces the other way, giving good reason to believe the grass IS greener on the other side. Or in this behind the seasons look, winter IS colder on the other side.


Winter was created using Faber Castell Pitt artist pens, Micron pens and Windsor and Newton Watercolor on Arches watercolor paper.

Size – 8″ by 8″

The original illustration has since sold to an avid art collector in Canada but beautiful archival prints are listed in the shop or each season in both 8×8 inch and 5×5 inch size.
