Animals have always been a favorite subject in my artwork. My first painting, created when I was ten or eleven years old, was a portrait of a dog. I grew up around a lot of animals, including my grandparents’ ponies, chickens, dogs, cats, a squirrel monkey and an African grey parrot.
I’ve enjoyed a thirty-year career of creating animal characters with personalities in over fifty children’s books. Now, I am offering to create a custom portrait of your pet as a unique character, combining your pet’s likeness with an imaginative background, setting, props and costume. Your beloved pet can be cast as a variety of characters, including historical, storybook, sports, royalty and more.
Your pet is one of a kind and I will create a portrait in character that is also one of a kind.
If you have questions, fill out the form, below. Write PET PORTRAIT in the subject line.
