My passion is art and giving back to my community.  Starting with a blank canvas, my goal is to bring art to life.  I live and create in Chester County, Pennsylvania, a special place with a rich history of extraordinary artists and inspiration.

Custom Pet Portraits

My love for animals led me to paint custom pet portraits, and I'm loving every minute of it!

My clients are true pet lovers and it is so much fun for me to connect at my exhibitions. I see a lot of phone photos!

For each portrait, I strive to acquire the innocence and emotion that is conveyed through your animal's eyes and always with the goal of capturing the personality and spirit of your pet.​ Portraits are painted with acrylics on canvas.

In order to depict a detailed and vibrant representation of a pet, my commissioned portraits are painted from the client's emailed or texted photos.

The Philadelphia Home Show
