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)!
Thank you for your interest in my work! Commission books are closed for 2021, but gift certificates are still available. 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 over 10 hours to complete.
