ARTIST STATEMENT

Through my work, I seek to honor the unique life and energy within your pet to preserve your joyful memories forever. My hand-drawn portraits are created in my Vermont home studio, with assistance from my rescue-dog side-kick Elsa. I love to create art and am passionate about rescue (art + rescue dogs = my happy place)​!

PORTRAIT COMMISSIONS

Commission books are currently open (with limited remaining availability in 2021). Portraits take between 2-4 weeks to complete depending on complexity of the portrait and time of year (e.g. the higher-volume, winter holiday season). My portraits are 100% hand-drawn - each mark is intentionally made to capture life and energy within your pet. I do not use any automated processes, software or photo editing techniques in my art and each piece takes 10 (+) hours to complete.
