Self taught since kindergarten. While brothers & sisters watched TV, I sketched my favorite animals & scenes. I start my drawings with oil pastels. I began experimenting with oil paints in my 20's. For my 30th birthday, I signed up for my first art class at a SF college where I learned the correct method of using Watercolors. The Dog Portrait shown here, is my first attempt at Watercolor painting. Later, I learned stained glass works at a local Rec Center. I took a job at a local Print shop where they taught me the "Art of Framing"... an invaluable experience for an Artist. After discovering that I was also pretty good at modeling clay animals, I looked for a class in Bronze Casting for my creations, but since I couldn't afford the SF Art Academy course offered, I settled for a local class at a Rec Center called "Metal Sculpting". At first, I thought I was in the wrong classroom when I saw the display of sterling silver jewelry, but the Teacher assured me it was "Metal Sculpting" using the 'Lost-wax Casting' method and she further assured me that it was very similar to bronze casting only done in miniature. So, I signed up and shortly after became an accomplished Silversmith and a Goldsmith. It started as a hobby, but it paid for itself from my numerous sales during holidays and birthdays. I used Genuine Gems with either solid 14k Gold or solid 925 Sterling Silver. I began a business called "GINGET JEWELRY" in which I made lovely fine jewelry including wedding sets for friends and colleagues at my work place.

My passion as an Artist to create beautiful things is a major part of my existence. While working a full-time job as a Finance Manager in the Auto industry, I formally launched "Ginger Hopp Designs".

"ARROW" German-Shorthaired-Pointer - WATERCOLOR

Arrow was my show dog, a purebred German Shorthaired Pointer. Instead of spotted tick marks, the breed description calls it a solid liver color version.

Since this was my first attempt at any watercolor, painted during a class in which the professor insisted we use only black, even though this breed was a gorgeous and rich reddish brown.
