I have been an artist working in gouache, some watercolor, and water based oils. I do both traditional as well as abstract art. Currently I am focusing on surface design, based on original works, reworked through digital media. I am an author, Dinner With Cecile and William, a cookbook with my co-author William Maltese. Plus, Light Within Cobblestones, which has 24 illustrations in traditional form. But my two most exciting efforts are in the digitized originals as well as Itsy and Droop, my newest book characters that were birthed through the digital process from an original artwork. My new Book Series Itsy and Droop showcase this artform as well as the written word. here will be at least 24 childrens books at the end of the first series. Plus...well, that part will come out soon. You can find Itsy and Droop - The Beginning of Itsy's and Droop's Magical Garden Adventures here: https://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/8423550/86cedac107b2919d9488171fb4390ea183c59d13?fbclid=IwAR1365inxr42q35GrQ7RUdpCkxauqKPwoN0nSj78fTx1RRXTcHx56_BwS7I My art website is going through an overhaul but I have added the Isty and Droop website for now.
