I began painting portraits in 2009. It didn’t take long to fall completely in love with it, and now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
My current focus is animal portraiture, especially cats and dogs. I love to immortalize memories, moments in time, and personalities. I paint from reference photos because it allows you to select your favorite image of your loved one, the image that evokes the essence of who they are. I use acrylic on canvas to create a vibrant and realistic work of art that will make you smile (or cry) when it catches your eye. I have a collection of tiny paintbrushes to get that perfect fur texture, and bring the painting to life with vivid colors and bright eyes.
Relationships are cherished. Memories are treasured. I love seeing my finished paintings given as meaningful gifts or used as a way to memorialize those who have passed on. I value the connections and stories that I experience through sharing my art in this way. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that I can paint something for you!
