About Your Portrait

I'm DCGotlib. Thank you for stopping by my website.

Originally from the deep south, I've been painting since the age of two when I found a can of spray snow and set about decorating our family home for the holidays. Fortunately, my father recognized my talents and decided to encourage my creativity by channeling my artistic interests in more productive ways. Instead of becoming angry, he went out and purchased my very first art desk. I've been creating art of one type or another since that time.

I've made my happy home in Ann Arbor, Michigan for the last seventeen years where I live with my wonderfully supportive and encouraging husband, Steven. Between us we have five children, two sons-in-law, one amazing little grandson, two American Eskimo dogs and a wonderful group of extended family and friends. You can find my decorative painting and portrait work in homes across the deep south, throughout the United States and even in Italy. My work has been included in show houses and special historic home tours. My collages can be found throughout the world and were even featured in a one-woman-show titled 'Fractured Realities' at the University of Missouri Saint Louis in 2012.

My Watercolor Portraiture,

celebrates both daily life and special occasions with a clean, straight-forward approach, creating a work of art that is destined to be treasured and passed down through the generations. Little is more satisfying than receiving a special note from the client or portrait recipient.
