We are so amazed and happy with the portrait of our Boston terrier Zeke. Robin was able to capture his personality to a tee in the painting! We could not be happier. Thank u Robin, u are truly gifted!!

I order a lot on Etsy, and of all the vendors I habe worked with, Robin has been my favorite. After our young rescue dog, Rocky, unexpectedly passed away in May, I contacted Robin to create something that would allow us to look over to "his spot" and see his sweet face. From the soulful eyes to the speck of black in his white fur to the beautiful shiny coat, she captured our Rocky for us in the most beautiful way. Robin also was very much a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to having her create something for us again down the road.

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%, if you are the first person to not love your portrait, just return it to me in perfect condition and I will refund you.

My husband, John, is a wonderful artist and draws the beautiful sepia and white portraits, and helps me with the initial stages of painted portraits. He also paints signs and event illustrations for weddings, showers, proposals, anniversaries. John also takes care of all the back room work.

All of our 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 people and 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
