Original Art by s.hardi

I work in oil, acrylic and pastels and I am fascinated with mixed media.

I have always loved painting and drawing. I began producing art in my early 20s, but, as with many avocations, life interrupted. With everything that comes with raising a family, I pursued several careers to pay the bills. I was a hairstylist for many years and, for the past 20 years, I’ve worked as an accountant. After moving to Texas, I pursued my passion for art full-time, I paint with oil, pastel, and watercolor.

Two years ago I was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer, so my artistic pursuits took a bit of a hiatus. Recently I have been doing a lot of new techniques and work with more color. My work includes several commissioned portraits. I really enjoy putting my touch into portraits of children and animals.
