“The best therapist has fur and four legs.”
In our pets we find comfort, companionship, trust, happiness, and more importantly a soul. When I look into the eyes of an animal I see within them, I see their soul, this allows me to paint for you something unique to just your pet. You will see your pet in this painting, you will feel them through my paintings.
I have been painting for many years, but not until recently have I found cause for my creations. After losing one of my beloved pets (pictured here) something in me told me to start to paint again. Since then I have been painting as often as I can for family, friends and whomever else wants their pets painted.
I love to create these paintings!! So many times I am painting because of a loss, but sometimes not. When I paint it becomes real for me, I truly feel your furry kids when I paint them, I even cry when I feel them and I know they are waiting for me to paint something special for the mom and dad. Seeing the photos from all of you gives me inspiration, each one is unique and one of a kind. The pictures talk to me and from these photos I decide what colors, properly placed will give off the proper emotion from the photo. I paint in acrylic, and watercolor paint and I draw in charcoal pencils and pastels. All of the photos can be done in multicolor or the "true" colors of the actual dog. As you can see I have a deep love for Bernese Mountain Dogs, but I can paint any breed, any cat, any horse, anything, the sky is the limit and it is your choice.
I will work with you to get you exactly what you want so please don't hesitate to ask!!
Send me your favorite photos and let me turn them into something special for you!!!
