IT ALL STARTED WHEN . . .
. . . my son asked me to paint a portrait of his girlfriend’s dachshund for a Christmas present! I had just retired and was beginning to paint again after years of working as a graphic designer and writer. We’re a pet-centric family of dog lovers, so I said YES immediately!
The finished painting of that pint-sized, long-haired dachshund* was such a hit it spawned an idea: why not offer this as a service? We all have tons of pet photos on our smartphones, but a hand painted portrait can capture your pet’s unique personality in a single image and be a constant reminder of the amazing emotional bond you share! I gathered up my oil paints and brushes, and started painting!
As a pet owner and dog lover, I take exceptional care to create a portrait that reflects your dog’s special character. From selecting a digital photo to painting the final portrait, I invest considerable hours into each project. It’s really a labor of love!
I would LOVE to paint YOUR pet!
