About Me

My photo
I have studied art throughout my life starting at a young age being taught by my father, a book illustrator. I then went on to study at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, The Art Institute Online of Pittsburgh, and the Academy of Art University of San Francisco. I recently completed a Liberal Studies degree with a concentration in another of my passions, Environmental Science. I created art that I printed on cards and commissioned to local gift shops, but it was not until I started my pet care business in 2010 that I was inspired to do pet portrait art. Our fur babies are as much a part of our families as our humans, and I enjoy capturing not only their likeness, but their character, humor, and spirit. My portraits have been done in charcoal, oil, and acrylic with my present works being done mostly in pastel.

Cozy Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice! This cozy time of year is my favorite for reflecting and taking some time to relax and be creative. My windows are lit with candles, and my cats are purring, content in their warm winter spots around the house. I curl up in a chair with a steamy mug of peppermint tea (relaxing comfort drink), a good book (always stay curious about the world and everything in it), a plate of homemade cookies (of course), and always nearby is a sketchbook for those moments of inspiration. Even when the winds blow cold and harsh and the snow is piling outside my window, I always stop to appreciate this wondrous place where we live. Let it snow! :)
