This project was a labor of love! It was so peaceful to paint again. It had been since 2005 that I had done anything this large-scale. I had a little helper along the way named Abby. She was so patient with me and my work. She helped me paint and prep the wall for the colors and then helped me sketch the design on the wall. Later on in the process she said, “mommy, can I paint the paw print?”. I, of course, obliged! Such a sweetheart.
I originally got started on this painting some time ago. After a burst of energy I got going on the blank canvas. I added some new paint to the tiger portrait about a month ago. The eyes are not done but the base layers of paint are starting to go on. Oils take so long to dry. It’s much different than painting with acrylics that dry in like 10-15 minutes. The colors are starting to come together now. Can’t wait until it dries! It’s finally dry and about a month later. I am going to continue to add layers of oil paint until I get what I like. I finally have someone that I can give this painting to. I added color to his eyes and finished out the under painting. Now to WAIT…AGAIN! It’s finally done. Got this one to Super-Tiger in time for her birthday this year. Hooray! She will have something to cherish for a lifetime!!!
Fine art, sketching and painting were some of my first artistic passions. Today that skill set transfers over to my love of graphic design.
I have extensive knowledge of web marketing and can design anything from marketing emails, banner advertisements and user interfaces to Facebook pages and social networking graphics. I have over 15 years of experience in web design, user experience and user interfaces.
Fun was had by all. Special appearances by Tattoo and crew from Fantasy Island, The Jersey Boys and Michael Jackson. No animals were harmed in the making of these photos. Happy Birthday Ms. Della!!! We love you!!!

Welcome to the Wiseman family portrait session. Fun was had by all but Josh! We couldn’t quite get him to smile. Needless to say, there was a little coaxing involved!!
I am inspired by nature and especially the beauty of the Arizona desert! Explore and enjoy.
Abstract photography captures a unique perspective and focuses on shape, form, color, pattern and texture. Beauty can spring from common objects using the lens to capture what is unseen to the naked eye.
Let me help you capture those special moments in a portrait session. From senior pictures to family portraits my goal is to bring your personality to each shot.
