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.

Autumn Play

"Autumn Play" 12 x 16 Pastel drawing


"Autumn Play" Happy Autumn Solstice! Here's my newest pastel drawing inspired by one of my pet care client's kitties. I enjoyed the mimicking of the bark and the cat's fur pattern. It's warm this week here in Ohio, but the cooler weather is just around the corner, and I can't wait! Autumn is my favorite time of year. Not only is the food the best this time of year, but the landscape is beautiful. So get outside and catch some falling leaves, jump in a leaf pile, and then have a slice of  pumpkin bread and a mug of warmed apple cider. 🍎🍂

All of my original drawings are for sale. I am also now taking orders for custom pet portrait drawings for the holidays. Enjoy the season! 🍁
