Hunger Games Katniss Watercolor Painting
Hunger Games Katniss Fan Art

I've created quite a few paintings based on movie posters and scenes. The Hunger Games series probably ties with Breakfast at Tiffany's when it comes to the number of pieces I painted off one movie theme. This dystopian adventure film series started off fresh and sensational....

A lot of beginning artists ask this question "How do I start?" They may take lessons, watch Youtube videos, read books that will take you from sketching to mixing colors, to putting down initial wash, etc.  My advice, which some may find useless, is buy...

Madonna Creative Pop Icon

She always has been controversial and reinventing herself for the past three decades. It is hard to pin down her style. Her fan or not, not many can deny that she is one of the most creative and talented artists with a long career. I...

Twiggy Watercolor Portrait
Twiggy Look – Water color illustration

My favorite subject for my drawings and paintings is iconic people from last century. Many of them were active before I was born. Twiggy is one of them but her unique style still seems to inspire a lot of women. I had to read up on...

Mad Men Jon Hamm?

People have asked me "Do you draw men?" I guess I can, but I rarely do. I think I'm going to explore men a little more as well, as funny as it sounds ; ) The funny thing is when I draw and paint women,...

Brigitte Bardot’s Fashion Style

I can’t leave Brigitte Bardot out of my star portrait collection, can I? She was one of the biggest fashion icons in the 1950s and 60s. Almost every famous model has donned a Brigitte Bardot look. Bardot's style was very chic, feminine and rather casual than...

Shirley Temple Watercolor Painting

Shamefully, I haven’t seen any of Shirley Temple’s movies or shows. I sometimes happen to catch a commercial of her collection on TV, which always makes me wish to squeeze her. She was a perfectly cute and adorable girl, like a living doll. Unfortunately her...

Lucille Ball – Watercolor painting

The world honored Lucille Ball, the face of I Love Lucy, on her 100th birthday on August 6.  60 years since "I Love Lucy" first aired, her legacy remains remarkable. I think she has to be one of the most long lived Hollywood TV stars. Honestly,...

Audrey Hepburn watercolor illustration

Of all the great movie stars of the '50s and '60s, none seems to resonate quite as potently in our own time as Audrey Hepburn. Her status as an icon of both classic film and contemporary fashion -- where her name is an adjective ("That's...

Marilyn Monroe watercolor

This Marilyn Monroe watercolor painting was the very first listing on my Etsy shop. Once up, it created more buzz than I ever imagined, featured in several treasure lists. I wanted to create her in a different unique style...
