This is a beautiful print. I got for my daughter for her birthday. It looks just like another gift from me, her collie Trip. The print arrived quickly and was well packaged.

About

Creating my Animal Artwork

I have been creating paintings, drawings and illustrations professionally since the mid 1980s, with horses and dogs as my two favorite subjects. Watercolor, pen and ink and graphite/pencil are my favorite mediums. My artwork is in collections worldwide.

Each of my paintings and drawings begins with a great deal of research for both the animal and the background that it will fit into. While I do some portraits, most of my paintings are from my imagination after looking at hundreds of photos. Each painting takes a great deal of time, from the research to the preliminary drawing, to the many stages of a finished painting. Watercolor paintings are created on 300 lb. 100% rag cold pressed watercolor paper, and acrylic paintings are done on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. I use many successive washes of transparent color combined with drybrush to obtain the effect that I want. Paintings can take from two weeks to six months to complete. Pen and ink drawings are done with a crow quill pen and India ink on bristol board, and both the pen and ink and pencil drawings are finely detailed.

My husband Hunter does the high resolution photography of the original artwork and we create each giclee print with archival ink and fine art paper when your order is placed. I examine each print, sign and number it and create a certificate of authenticity for it. The open edition prints are made and signed with the same care. I also handle the shipping and your print is carefully packed so that it will arrive safely at its new home.

    Both animals and art have fascinated me since I was a child. I work in watercolor, pen and ink and graphite/pencil, and try to capture the beauty and spirit of animals in my art. Thank you for taking a look at my drawings and paintings!
