My painting style

The oil paintings I offer are custom and hand painted. I never use a computer and my paintings are not mass produced.

I work from your photographs and with your input. And, as you will see, a hand-painted custom portrait, painted with care, can transcend a photo in capturing your pet’s spirit.

My style of painting is considered “painterly”. The definition of “painterly” is that you can see the brush stokes as opposed to “non-painterly”, like graphics produced by a computer. What this means to you is that your portrait will truly be unique – a one of a kind original.

I will work with you to ensure that you are absolutely delighted with the finished portrait. I always work hard to make sure it is an easy and positive experience for you.

A great gift

Recipients are always impressed and moved to receive a custom painting of their beloved pet. Your thoughtfulness will be very much appreciated. I also offer gift certificates for those in a time crunch.

A lovely memory

If you or a friend or relative has lost their beloved pet, a beautiful portrait of that fur family member is a wonderful way to commemorate a unforgettable relationship.

A painting can capture that special something about a beloved pet and the gift of a pet memorial portrait will be forever treasured by your friend or loved one.

Copyright information

All of my work is copyrighted. I retain full reproduction copyright on each portrait, but because of the personal nature of a commission piece, I will not use an image for cards or art prints without the permission of the client.

You own the painting that you purchase. If you want a reproduction of any kind, such as a t-shirt, mug, greeting card, or print, please contact me and I will assist you. I am happy to print giclée quality prints, in various sizes for you to give to friends and family.
