The Artist

Hello, Welcome to my Pet Portrait Blog. First I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised just outside of Buffalo NY. I am now living in Atlanta GA. My husband and I have two beautiful daughters, 4 Shih Tzu's and a Great Dane. Life is good! Growing up we always had a dog and sometimes other little critters. I was lucky to have parents that loved animals as much as I did. As a little girl I loved to draw and color. I would sit for hours with my friends and draw different things and we would have contests. Later when I moved to GA and after I married and had children I got into the collectibles/antique business. I enjoyed that for 15 years.I started painting on furniture, clothes, glass and old windows. Recycling the old windows and furniture into something whimsy was a big hit. My customers would have me paint windows to hang on their front porches, in their gardens, and even in their houses. That was the beginning of painting murals at home, churches and store fronts. Again people were loving the whimsical style I had. From there I went to a few art classes and loved what I was learning. I was surprised to find that my passion in painting was not landscape, still life or people portraits. My favorite was to paint animals. Maybe because I love animals and I can connect with them. Again, friends and family were enjoying my paintings and soon I was getting jobs to paint peoples pets for gifts. So here I am and loving it.

Important information I will need from you before you order

I paint from photographs which I can get through email or snail mail.
1) Make sure the photo is taken in natural lighting (this helps with the details, coloring and features on your pet)
2) Take the picture on your pets level.
3) A great face shot brings out your pets personality

Along with the photo tell me about: Color of hair, fur, or feathers
Choice of background color

Happy Holidays Furry Friends

It's been a busy year in everyway. Hope all of you are doing well. The Christmas Season is here again and it is a busy busy time. My pups and I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. These two painting are going to my two nieces for their Christmas gifts. They both got new puppies this past year so I thought what a better gift than a portrait of their fuzzy friend.
