MarieDolphin's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my shop!

The creative bug bit me at an early age. I grew up in Ohio as an only child. I spent hours and hours alone coloring in my coloring books and "crafting" things. I also developed a strong love for animals. They became my brothers and sisters!

I was always bringing home stray dogs, cats, rabbits.... When I volunteered at my local animal shelter I learned just how many wonderful animals got put to sleep because they couldn't find a home. It really broke my heart.

I went to college thinking I wanted to be a psychologist but then knew I needed to be doing something creative. I got a degree in commercial art and photography. I moved to Los Angeles to pursue my dreams! I worked as a set decorator for many years but felt something was missing. I finally realized my true love was to use my photography to help animals.

I self-published a line of pet calendars and greeting cards called Pound Pets featuring all rescued and adopted pets. I wanted to show what wonderful companions can be found at animal shelters and "breed" rescues. Some of my images in my shop are from this line of images.

I have a goal of making a difference in the lives of homeless animals through my photography and artwork. I have numerous exciting projects in the works!! I consider myself a mixed media artist. I am very passionate about what I do. I am always excited for the next day to keep working on my projects.

I married my best friend, Mac, who I've known for 33 years! We have two dogs: Miss Ellie (Puppa) and Clarisse (Piggly).. and take care of many others.

*I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have as well.

Thank you for visiting!
