LouLou always had a love for animals and realized that there is such a special bond between humans and their pets.  Creating custom portraits of dogs, cats and horses for her fellow pet owners capture this powerful connection. 

 

Her natural gift as a painter lies in her ability to reveal an animal’s unique personality and spirit.  Although LouLou does all of her portraits remotely, she has an innate ability to draw subtle nuances of her subject's character through her client's conversations and their pet's photographs. 

Each commissioned original starts with an expression of the eyes, painted in vibrant detail with acrylic on canvas, using the client's favorite pet photograph.

LouLou's studio is located in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.  A region of Chester County which is an inspiring community

with a rich history of extraordinary artists.
