Robin is AMAZING! I sent her a picture of my mom's two dogs (one of which has passed away) & we truly feel like we are looking into Roxie's eyes when we pass the painting; she looks so life-like. Robin captured their expressions PERFECTLY. I would also like to add that she was fabulous with communication & more than accommodating with my requests. Thank you, Robin!

Sarge, my model for this painting, would rather pose than watch me paint ANOTHER dog!

Custom Pet Portrait Painting, your dog's breed


Pet, People and House Portraits in Oils on Canvas, Watercolors and Colored Pencil

I love to paint and am a full time portrait painter. I've won local awards, but my favorite recognition, is when I'm selected to draw or paint someone's pet or house or loved one. They make such great gifts, and I love being "in on" the process. Unlike many artists, I absolutely love the commission process. I guarantee my work 100%.

All of my art is original, made the old fashioned way with brush or pencil in hand, not computer generated anything! I love to capture the personality of pets and even houses seem to have a personality! *

    I watch her paint and draw other people's pets and houses. Sometimes I pose for her. And I walk her every day. I got her a spot on FYI Philadelphia TV show with me AND my portrait. I was put on Etsy's front page. All this makes her happy! Sarge
