Ancestry Art

I am irresistibly drawn to old photographs of family, and I am inspired to reinvent the portrait studio of old through my artwork.  By the time I've completed each drawing, I feel a new connection to these ladies and gentlemen.

These drawings are usually done on gray-toned paper, using pen and ink stippling, or monochrome brush tip pens with white charcoal highlights.


Explore your family albums and allow me to transform your favorite old photographs into beautiful new keepsakes.
