I have always loved animals, and I've also loved drawing them from a very early age! One of the very first things I ever drew was a bear coming out of a cave... As the years have passed, and my skill set has grown, my pet portraits have just naturally evolved into something magical. I strive to capture the essence and soul of each pet that I draw. Many of my portraits are memorials of beloved pets that have passed, or capture a moment in time, like that sweet and adorable puppy phase, or even incorporate some of their favorite things, places, seasons, and even their owners! I feel honored to capture them and bring them to life for their pet parents! I also have a very unique way of drawing. I use Prismacolor pencils, and I've honed some techniques that make my drawings look like well-burnished paintings, with vivid color and detail being trademarks of my style.
