My name is Connie and I'm an artist, I have been full-time freelance since 2004 working on various projects from Sketch Card Art (Contract Properties and Personal Sketch Card Commissions), Pet Portraits (Regular and Memorial), Graphic Design (Postcards and Flyers), and Character Illustration/Paintings.
I mainly work in Mixed Media of Watercolor, Acrylic & Colored Pencil or Marker, Acrylic & Colored Pencil, I love portraiture and expressive faces; I enjoy creating art for people, it's deeply satisfying when a patron connects with a piece of my artwork. Because of this, it's important for me to create work that is alive, and meaningful.
My journey as an artist includes 4 years as a Graphic Illustrator in the United States Marine Corps; I was stationed at Quantico, Virginia. I served during Desert Shield then later Desert Storm, I left the Marines in 1992.
