Welcome to Hickory Studio!
I’m a self-taught painter residing in Benton, AR, and I’ve been painting professionally for the past two years.
I have a studio at home, and work primarily in oil. My focus is landscapes, but I also do abstract, pet portraits, and a few other subjects occasionally…I’ve even painted a few vintage hand saws!
For the past few years, I’ve competed at the Arkansas State and Saline County fairs, bringing home several 1st place ribbons.
I’m a registered artist with the Arkansas Arts Council, and am a member of Arkansas League of Artists.
I’m happy to do custom paintings, so if you have a special request, I’ll do my best to accommodate!
I’m a big animal advocate, and donate portions of my painting sales to local shelters. I’m creative in several areas…including the kitchen…and love to cook vegetarian and diabetic-friendly dishes. You are sure to see some posts starring my pets and various dishes I create, in addition to my artwork. I’m a certified Natural Health Consultant, so my focus is always on healthy foods and ideas to make not-so-healthy meals a little better for you.
Thanks for stopping by!
