Unconditional love, paint, and canvas.
I began painting portraits in 2009. Since then I have fallen completely in love with it, and there is no turning back.
My current focus is animal portraiture, especially cats and dogs. I love to immortalize memories, moments in time, and personalities. I paint from reference photos because it allows you to select your favorite image of your loved one, the image that evokes the essence of who they are. I use acrylic on canvas to create a vibrant and realistic work of art that will make you smile (or cry) when it catches your eye. My favorite parts are using vivid colors, going nuts with my tiny paintbrushes, and feeling like I know the animal once the painting is complete.
Relationships are cherished. Memories are treasured. I love seeing my finished paintings given as meaningful gifts or used as a way to memorialize those who have passed on. I value the connections and stories that I experience through sharing my art in this way. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that I can paint something for you!
