Artwork > Whimsical Paintings, St. Francis Friends

Welcome to my whimsical style of painting.

Here I create the world with a bit of magic!
St. Francis can show up in places other than Assisi, Italy :) to bring his special comfort and love.

The reverse glass paintings have plenty of lovely animals in them, detailed with gold and silver highlights and rich jewel colors.

It is the shimmering, gleaming glass that gives my reverse glass paintings a jewel like quality.

The animal/pet reverse glass paintings in this gallery are commissioned pet portraits, painted on the back side of glass in reverse.

Celebrate your furry companion with a personal portrait. A perfect, timeless gift for you or someone special! Contact me for an estimate :)

An article in Tucson Happenings.com . The January/February and November 2019 issues feature an artist profile on my work and a bit of history on me!

Getting Connected is an article about details of St. Francis by author Michael Valiant that features my painting St. Francis in Florida. Read about it HERE

ArtsyShark Business features my St. Francis reverse glass painting process and can be read HERE. Risa's mosaic portrait was just featured on their IG #monthlyartist. Yay!
