I am an artist and a crazy dog lady. I have been painting for about 40 years and about 10 years ago, my two passions melded. Over the years, my skills at paintings dogs have grown and morphed.

As of this writing, I have completed over 60 dog portraits. As my skills and knowledge of dogs has grown, so has the demand for custom dog portraits. I have come full circle relying heavily on my skills acquired while studying representational art but incorporating a much more contemporary feel.

Best of all: What I do makes people very happy and gives them joy. I recently delivered three paintings to two different clients on the same day. Both recipients cried. It warmed my heart to know it was a “two crier” day. Crying mixed with smiles is a typical response - after all… we do love our pups,
