Interests and Personality I have drawn pictures for as long as I can remember. My favorite possessions (besides books) were crayons, pencils, and felt pens and I even won first prize in a coloring contest when I was in the second grade. I still draw but now I usually work with oil pastels on black paper. Animals are my main subject matter. Whether I am writing and illustrating children's books, creating designs for products or working on fine art, animals always seem to pop up. I live and work in Portland, Oregon. Clients include: Highlights for Children Henry Holt Houghton Mifflin Starbucks The Nature Company Second Nature Software Harcourt Mud Puppy Press Gango Editions The Canvas Company Doernbecher Children's Hospital Little, Brown, & Co. Books include: Good Night Sigmund Dogs in Space Tom's Fish The Dog Who Cried Woof Dogs in Space: The Great Space Doghouse What's Cookin' Pug in a Truck (Fall 2006) Fred Stays With Me (2007)

Hi! Listen, I have about 6 months to prepare for my first solo show, and I was hoping you could assist me. I will need to have at least 30 paintings to display. If you could, with as much honesty as possible, please name 2 of my completed pieces that you feel I should definitely show. Also, please share 3 things with me, based on my current work, (remember be honest), that you would recommend to me for improving my art in general. I am fine if you post this on my public board because it may be interesting to others. The feedback from other artist on this website is very valuable to me. Thanks! ~Marianne


Nancy,Thanks for the kind comments about my work, Well done on getting clients and not surprising as your work is lovely too! Saz
