Design & Illustration

I did creative watercolors for this author’s chapter beginnings. They were anatomical (medical) illustrations that are slightly surreal and fantasy watercolors. The body systems covered in her book are cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, immune, musculoskeletal, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, senses, skin, and urinary.  Michèle Bourgeois B.Sc., M.Ed., BHSP,GTP  is a compassionate and intuitive energy healing practitioner with over 35 years of combined experience in the traditional medical field and alternative and complementary holistic therapies. Her website is The Turning Point, and the title of her book is, “Where Your Mind Goes, Energy Flows“.

A good example of my pencil drawings are in a middle school novel where my work was used as chapter beginnings the book is entitled “Dolphin Healing” by Jill Gurr. It is a delightful book about a young girl facing a serious illness, cancer, healing with the help of her loving friend, “Dreamer” a dolphin.

Another good example of my watercolor animal characters are in a children’s book entitled, about “The Stranger” that moves into a garden after a birthday party and all the animals are trying to figure out who it is and what does he want? It is written by AnaBella a.k.a. Irmgard Schippmann in Canada.

Portraits are listed under the word Portrait in the “IMAGES” in the navigation links at the bottom of each page. I enjoy doing portraits of people, pets, and animals, preferring to work from multiple photographs. Painting in oil, acrylic or watercolor. Drawing in pencil, pen & ink, chaulk, or charcoal.
