About Arlene

Whatever I see, I interpret with the deliberate intention to change the viewer’s observation of everyday beauty.
It is our everyday world that holds a marked fascination for me.


It begins with a photograph. An extensive background in film and photography has given me keen powers of observation and the ability to compose through the camera’s lens.


Years after your family photos have faded, your portrait painting will last for generations.

Beauty is observed on the soft folds of fabric,
the rough chop of bark or the mottled skin of a wrinkled grape.


“Your cherished photographs come alive with my realistic style and artistic vision. Compelled and passionate to capture the personality and character of each  subject, my distinctive signature is the attention I pay to fine detail and strong color.”
