I am thankful to be able to combine my passion and my career with my small business, Shamrock Studios. Each piece of art is handmade by me at my home studio, with love and care. 35+ years of hands-on experience with animals helps me to create realistic fine art portraits and to capture the right moment in a photograph. I would love to work with you to create a special piece of art to honor the beautiful partnership and love you share with your animal.
I live in Virginia with my boyfriend, retired racehorse, and a very special rescue dog. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, doing agility and barn hunt with Daisy, reading books, spending time at the barn, and listening to music.
Daisy is the real supervisor of Shamrock Studios. She is always ready to lend a paw when any of the team needs a laugh, or to lead Fresh Air Walks if someone has been working too long. She is very happy that Bonnie has found a career that allows her to work from home several days a week.
Daisy prefers the more active things in life, such as agility, hiking and hunting. She also enjoys back massages and cat treats.
Kathy is Bonnie’s mom and business partner. She and Bonnie discuss ideas, and she is able to provide valuable feedback during artistic blocks. She is also an avid animal lover and a talented artist. Kathy creates art through her own studio, Windy Hill Gourdcraft, where she raises gourds and turns them into beautiful bowls, birdhouses, ornaments, and more. She joins Bonnie at art shows and photography events from time to time, where they merge their talents and hard work.
Kathy lives with her husband and dog outside of Charlottesville, VA. In her spare time, she enjoys playing agility with Cricket, hiking, gardening and reading.
