Salt River Memories

 

Salt River Performs!

Been checking out different videos of Salt River on line and pulled this up from two years ago on You Tube. We did this concert for the Summer Concert Series at Durham Library, in Durham, NH. It was a very fun concert featuring Mike Rogers on his amazing blues harmonica! We have a new bass player since this concert, Dan McClellan.

My First Caricature gig of 2020!

My first Caricaturing gig of 2020! It was in New Hampshire about an hour from where I live in Southern Maine.
It was a sweet sixteen birthday party, where it seemed like everyone of the twenty-five or so girls there had miniskirts or very short dresses on! No boys at this party though, except for the brother and his friend above! I really had so much fun drawing these caricatures!
Hoping to be able to continue doing caricatures in the near future! Happy Drawing!

How many books did I illustrate in the past decade?

Celebrating 10 years pursuing my art and looking forward to the next ten! 

Ten years ago in 2010 I started doing silhouettes and began my Etsy shop!

In 2012 I started adding Caricatures to my shop and started doing them in public. In 2014 I started connecting to online agencies and began to do silhouettes and caricatures for private parties, festivals  and weddings for hire! Some pictures included below!

Before that time I had  illustrated one book, and had had some illustrations in a several collections of stories and some children's magazines, but not often. I have written and/or illustrated eight children's book since 2010, and am about to start illustrations for two more children's books in 2020!
Here's the list! Yahoo!
