Honoring the Bond Between Human and Animal Since 1999

In 1999, while working on my BA in Studio Art at American University in Washington DC, I decided to paint my friend's dog, George, as a birthday gift. Friends saw it, loved it, and a bunch wanted one of their own pets. Thus, MyAnimalArt.com was born! I'd always connected with animals and this seemed like a perfect way to commemorate that bond between human and animal. Add more love, bring happy tears. That's been my motto from the beginning.

Since then, it seems like I've lived a lifetime - 10 years were spent in San Francisco where I had a great studio in the Potrero District and churned out several hundred portraits. About a year ago, I committed to something I've always wanted to do - getting a Master's degree in Illustration. I moved back to the East Coast and began my graduate training, starting at Academy of Art University. I can't believe how even just one year has improved my skill level. I think I was really ready to grow.

Now I've planted roots in Brooklyn, because I was recently honored to be one of 20 chosen to join the Illustration as Visual Essay's 2015 MFA class at School of Visual Arts - the dream of all dreams, as far as illustration schools go! I'm looking forward to an exciting career, but these animal portraits will forever remain close to my heart, and I can't imagine I'll ever stop making them. There's nothing more rewarding than hearing how happy a client is when they receive their art.

Welcome to my shop! I have been memorializing pets for over 13 years, and it continues to warm my heart every time I hear "you've really captured them." I try to go beyond photo-realism and represent the spirit that lives behind the eyes of every dog, cat and other animal. I like to get several pictures from you, talk about their likes and dislikes, quirks and special markings. Let's put our heads together and find the best way to represent your best friends.
