About

3crows

Hi there, my name is Sara Pulver and I am the captain of this ship called 3crows. I guess I'm the crew as well and I hate to admit it but at times I am a pack of pirates but only when the tide is out.

Painting and making things seems to have become my mainstay and I feel lucky for the serpentine set of circumstances that have led me to this place called My Life Right Now. I live a simple one by the great Lake Ontario, where entertainment is a backyard full of birds and a serendipity-kissed blessing of FOUR(!) dogs of various sizes and temperaments. (in shorthand: turns out the stray we took in was pregnant.)

I have developed numerous series, most of which you can find in my shop and also have a penchant towards making things out of found or tossed objects. I love doing custom paintings of families and their pets and find that I have something unique to add to the vast field of wonderful illustrators here on Etsy.

Here's how 3crows got it's name:
About 20 years ago I was walking down the street and all of a sudden these birds were making a terrible racket. I looked up and saw that it was three crows cawing away. I'd always heard that three crows was a sign of something bad, death of some kind, so I sarcastically muttered 'great' and the racket stopped just as suddenly as it started.
I never forgot those three crows cawing and I was actually thinking of them about 10 years later as I was flipping through a book on Native Americans. I said to myself, "I wonder what MY Indian name would be." And right at that second I turned to a page with a picture of three crows with their mouths open, like they were cawing! And an Indian name was born.

I am not Indian though I do admire the culture, especially the respect for the animals and the planet. I feel like we've gotten pretty far away from that kind of regard and I guess at the core of my painting happy cats and dogs and whatnots is the hope of inspiring people to care and to take care and also to sort of send a little flag up to the people who get it (hey now!).

Thank you for stopping at my shop. I'm Sara Pulver and I've been painting and making things for about 25 years now. I'm an animal lover at heart and that's pretty much what you'll see here in my shop.

I do commissions on stretched canvas. There are listings in my shop in the Custom Pet Portraits section for the different sizes and you can even order prints or cards of the commission to share with your friends and family.

All of the prints I offer can be made into cards or ACEO prints, and any 8x10 print can be made into a 16x20.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.
