I began learning about miniature art in the Fall of 2005, while researching miniature artwork. Fascinated by this unique, but time-honored specialty art, I began experimenting with miniatures. In 2006, I worked in colored pencils on paper, oils on canvas and oils on properly prepared mat board. Among the many drawings and paintings I created were a handful of miniature portraits of horses for clients.
At the beginning of 2007, I initiated a personal challenge to finish one new ACEO landscape painting every day except Sundays. I had so much fun with that project that by the end of April, I had completed over 130 tiny paintings … nearly 20 extras!
By the end of the year, I had painted 315 original ACEOs in oils, colored pencil, pen and ink, and even Crayons.
