Custom Dog Portraits
Honor your beloved fur baby with the ultimate keepsake.
Dogs truly are our best friends. Their loyalty, warm companionship, and unconditional love enrich our lives far beyond measure. With soulful eyes, adorable mugs, and sloppy wet kisses they make us smile, remind us to live in the moment, and leave indelible paw prints on our hearts. Purebred or pure mutt, every dog deserves to be immortalized with a professional custom portrait.
Each commission is a privilege and a labor of sweet, furry love. Portraits are hand drawn from photo(s) with oil-based colored pencil, rendered with care and attention to the very last detail, on premium, acid free pastelmat, and finished with UV archival varnish. Shipping and insurance are free within the continental United States.
International Artist Magazine Article
I'm thrilled, and of course deeply honored, to have a 6-page article in the February/March 2022 issue of International Artist magazine.
HALO Animal Rescue was kind enough to provide me with a handsome model for the colored pencil dog portrait demo part of the piece. Onyx is a super sweet boy and he sat so nicely for the camera. Being such a lover, it was no surprise that he was adopted not long after our photo shoot.
Fundraising Calendar for HALO Animal Rescue
I spent the first part of 2021 on a series of 12 portraits of rescue dogs from HALO Animal Rescue. This collection of wonderful furry friends has now been made into a 2022 calendar. All proceeds from calendar sales go directly to HALO. With the holidays closing in, now is the perfect time to purchase as a gift for your favorite dog lover or just treat yourself! On clearance sale now. ONLY $5.00!
Yes, Cats Too
Although I'm a dog lover and my artistic focus is often on dogs, I also love cats and am happy to accept cat commissions too. It was brought to my attention some time back that I hadn't done portraits of my own fur babies. These two characters are mine, Lola and Toby. They are part of a four portrait series 'The Cobbler's Children Have No Shoes'. You can see their canine siblings, Hailey and Livie, on my portfolio page.

Solum Vero Amore... (The Only True Love...)
The only true love is a dog's love. Cats have ulterior motives (people too sometimes). But when canine Cupid's arrow strikes it's pointless to resist. That fur baby owns you, and it's the best thing ever! Now you can share the love. Purchase any print, available original, or commission a custom portrait and 10% will be donated to shelter dogs.
Prints start at only $40.00. Shop now!
