Hi! I’m Toni I’ve been painting for about 15 years. I started with Pastels, then Acrylics, before moving onto Oils. All of my teachers are from here in the valley. I’ve participated in the Art event at the Napa Fair twice, winning several ribbons including Best in Show in the amateur category. Also I was in the Napa County Fair in Calistoga winning ribbons. The Yountville Art, Sip and Stroll was interesting and fun. I’ve been in art shows at Napa Valley Country Club as well as the Silverado Country Club. My work has been displayed at Eye Specialists of Napa Valley and Lefever Salon in Calistoga and Napa. My studio is in my home. This year I started doing popups. In addition to painting, I love photography and have shown my work at most of the above venues. I particularly like to edit my photos on the computer and create different versions. I’ve been attached to a camera since I was a child, my favorite adventure being on safari in Africa and recently Croatia. I love both past times, and the chance to express myself.
