I am a self taught, amateur artist who specializes in creating lifelong memories, capturing the very essence of the subject. I understand and am inspired by the bond of love between a pet and their owner.
A portrait preserves the memory of a beloved pet and makes a wonderful gift for yourself or someone else. Portraits ensure that the memories that were created remain and don’t fade away. I have had an obsession with animals and art for as long as I can remember.
Drawing and painting have been a crucial part of my life since I was 8 or 10 years old. I feel blessed to be able to follow my passion for art full time. I attempt to merge my God given talent and knowledge in computers to create digital paintings. I use the same techniques that I did with traditional painting, but now use an art pen and Wacom tablet with care and precision to ensure your portrait is perfect.
I find the bond between the pet and owner an inspiration. In my portraits, I try to express my joy and love of painting and animals in capturing the very soul unique to each animal. Pets give us unconditional love and I am thrilled to have found a way to combine both. I work primarily from photographs where the animal or pet is in their natural environment, whether at play, exploring, or resting.
My work can be found in private collections and local businesses and I work mainly from commissioned work. My paintings have been exhibited in numerous galleries and art shows over the past 25 years.
