Pet portraitist

& fine artist

Read a bit more about my background and learn how

I came to love painting!


Visit my online shop to view and purchase original artwork, prints and place orders for custom painted pet portraits.

I accept Venmo, PayPal and through Etsy.  Find out more about in person delivery in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area.

I work off of photos of pets that are emailed to me.  I use acrylic paint and apply it to wrapped cotton canvas.  The paintings are ready to hang, or may be framed for additional style and aesthetic wishes.  I mostly paint dogs and cats, however, please feel free to ask about other animals like bunnies, horses, chickens, etc.

Custom Hand Painted

Pet Portraits

A message about Corona virus

I invite you to enjoy my recent series of smaller, ready to ship and ready to hang pieces of work.  With corona virus affecting many people, I want to offer affordable artwork to inspire calmness, and a sense of peace during this unsettling time.  Thank you and may we all breathe in Light into our bellies and exhale fear and darkness.

To further give help to those wanting to enjoy pet portraits or artwork, please mention this message to receive 10% off any order.  Thank you!

Find stress relief with original artwork

" I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way- things I had no words for." - Georgia O'Keeffe


" Painting is self-discovery.  Every good artist paints what he is."

-Jackson Pollock

" Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics." 

- Victor Pinchuk


I believe that artwork has the potential to help heal hearts and relieve stress by allowing your subconscious to come to surface while viewing artwork. 

When you view art, it can call out to you, and make you feel a certain way.

When you purchase art, it means it truly captured your heart; and when you can look at it on a daily basis on your wall, it can bring great joy.

I look forward to helping create artwork for you or your loved ones, to bring joy to your mind and spirit.
