Vibrant Pet Portraits
Painted without paintbrushes!
If I don't use a paint brush, is it still called painting? 🤗
I use water, acrylic ink and a pencil to create custom animal portraits and custom artwork from photos. Painted on stretched canvas, ready to hang. My clients are kind people with big hearts, a love of things with 4 legs and an eye for color. The journey of capturing a pets' personality on canvas is teamwork because you know your pet better than anyone else does.

A Bit About Me
I owe my confident creative spirit to my grandmother, Nanny, who made me sit down and draw her something so I would stop picking on my three brothers. She saw a way to focus my curious energy when no one else did. I owe her so much for this lovely life I get to live.
I paint without using a brush due to trial and error. I now paint with a glass eyedropper. This came about by accident and I owe this technique to my cat Lola. (Long story there.)
I have a deep love of being allowed to make a massive mess when I wander in working. Watching ink overflow is witnessing it come to life. It's also realizing I don't have as much impact on the art as you might think I have. It has a mind of it's own. I appreciate that aspect.

and also find me on Instagram putting color on canvas.
The result of this technique is really cool dog pictures, custom pet portraits and custom art work. All products are 100% handmade in the USA by me and infused with that Martha's Vineyard, MV vibe.
I started painting pet portraits in 2007 when my dog Zazu looked at me like no one else ever has. I owe this life to her as well. Funny how I owe a lot of what I do to the kind souls in my past who saw something and shared it with me. I will be forever grateful to them for that.
May you have souls who do this for you. May you also do this for others. 💟☮️
