I am a Saloon Artist; my studio- the streets and bars of New York, San Francisco, New Orleans... wherever I happen to be. I portray bartenders, writers, musicians, barflies, and all species of Cocktailians.
They are our new Café Society: they gather in bars and also the internet, sharing ideas while navigating an
entrepreneurial global community. Some create alternative lifestyles for themselves, some live off the grid, others passionately pursue their craft. If they share an interesting tale while I draw them, that is my greatest reward!

My rogues gallery also pays tribute to bartenders - my husband's profession. It was his passion for bars and mixology which opened the opportunity to travel and meet so many interesting people in the spirits and culinary world. For this I am eternally grateful.
