Miniature Pet Portraits
    


 

About Us

  

    I love to paint  different breeds of dogs and cats as well as a variety of other

      animals.  I like to capture something of the individuality of each pet.  I also enjoy

     the
variety and uniqueness of art creations in general.  In my art classes I was

     always 
impressed with the fact that each student's creation was unique.

    
Even when all of
us were using the same model or the same set-up, each painting

was different.  
Each student had his or her own vision.  I like the idea of creating an oil painting that

can last for generations.  I would like to use my skill and my vision together with
your vision to create a

keepsake for
you that highlights the personality and the look of your special pet.

PS: Recently I have begun painting children's portraits from photographs. The charge for them is more than for the pet portraits.
