A lifelong animal owner and artist, I have over 35 years of experience drawing animals. I have studied their anatomy and locomotion, the direction in which their hair/fur lays, the expressions in their eyes. Being around animals every day helps me bring their spirit to life in my custom pet portraits.
I paint with acrylics on a variety of surfaces, including canvas, wood and glass. Colored pencils are my preferred medium for highly detailed, realistic pieces. My go-to brand of pencils is Faber Castell Polychromos.
I am inspired by the animals I've shared my life with, whether it was a for short time or many years. Each one has been unique, with special talents, funny antics, bold personalities, and distinguishing physical traits. My wish is to honor your pet through art.
