About me

Occupation pet portrait artist, pet sitter, writer, web site designer
Location Poway, CA, United States
Introduction I have owned cats, dogs horses and tortoises, and cared for hundreds more as a pet sitter and foster home for rescue groups. I also board dogs in my home. I have been painting pet portraits for 20 years. I learn every day as I sit and watch the animals around me in action and try to capture that in my art. In recent years, my focus on animals has led me to writing assignments from the Delta Society, Petco, and most recently my new book for Howell Book House. I am also a member of the Dogwriters Association of America and chair of their 2009 writing competition. As a retail art director, I gained a lot of experience in graphic design. Today, I use these skills in custom web site design for small businesses. In addition, my graphic design projects include logos, t-shirts designs, and assorted printed materials. Although many of my projects are pet related, I also do work for other industries too. Thanks for reading!
