A girl and her horse. These two share an amazing bond and spend everyday together moving cattle across a large ranch in West Texas, checking fence lines, trail riding and barrel racing.

About

Your pet is TOTALLY a part of your family. I get it.

Ya know, I've always felt that I loved my dog WAY too much. Like, on unhealthy levels of loving. Almost as if no one could even really understand the amount of love I have for my dog. I love his paws. I love his big pointy ears. I love his little nose (you get the point). But after reading the stories that my customers include with their orders, I've realized that I'm not alone. There are a LOT of people out there who love their pets tremendously. So your pet is totally a part of your family. I get it. You and I are now friends joined together by our unashamed pet loving!

How it all got started.

As far back as I can remember, I've wanted two things: to be an artist and to have a dog. That first one I had pretty much taken care of since I was a kid. I have a memory of sitting at my desk in the second grade and writing that when I grew up I wanted to "create things." Later on in college, I was lucky enough to study painting and drawing at a beautiful art school outside of Philadelphia. After school, I spent my time experimenting with lots of different materials and in 2006 made my second wish come true and picked up my first dog, Windsor.

A few years and a few carpet stains later, a friend asked if I could make her a custom portrait of her dog. I'd been playing around with combining screen printing and embroidery and had this crazy idea to make hoop portraits! They became so popular that I decided to start selling them to other pet lovers and the rest is history.

Something special happens when it's handmade.

My materials are a weird combination of all the things that I love: the bold design of printmaking mixed with hand-stitched embroidery. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong time, so if I can get away from NOT using a machine to create my work, I will. That's why all of the embroidery in Hither Rabbit is done by hand. I just love when you can see the artist’s hand in a piece. It might not be perfect, but it’s personal. Which is even better, right?

So many thanks...

I've been so lucky to work with some amazing pet owners! It's been such a pleasure to not only create portraits and toys for my clients but share stories of the love we share for our pets. It's made me realize that people are just as madly in love with their pets as I am with mine. Also, I'm not the only one that sniffs my dog's head because it smells so good (thanks, you guys). If you'd like to follow me and learn more about my process (or just read a lot about my dog) you can visit our blog at www.hitherrabbit.com or see pictures of me and my pup at our Instagram feed @hitherrabbit.

    I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Tyler School of Art. I'm inspired by art that is colorful, whimsical and makes me smile! When I'm not creating you can find me drinking tea with honey and tickling my dog's feet.
