About

Animals Plus Art Equals Win-Win Scenario

I've always loved drawing, but I hit a creative block and couldn't figure out what was stumping me until I started painting from reference photos. Then, bam, my passion was back! My cats inspired me to move into pet portraits instead of landscapes, since their adorable antics and cute faces never get wearisome to draw.

For about a year now, my preferred medium has been alcohol-based markers with calligraphy and gel pens for details. With each portrait I've had the blessing to create, I learn more about my trade and feel like I get to know the animals I'm drawing more intimately. It's a work that doesn't feel like work to me, and I'm just happy when I can meet people who like what they see and want one of their own or order them for friends.

As a self-taught artist starting out, I also have posted some original art pieces I've done and downloadable coloring pages. All of my stuff is made by hand, including the line art and the paintings on the keychains.

So thank YOU for visiting my shop!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

All I need is at least one reference photo to draw a portrait. However, multiple photos to reference are extremely useful, especially when it comes to accurately capturing the personality of the subject.

I accept all sorts of custom and personalized orders. Just run the idea by me to see if it will work out, that's all! :-)

Currently, I offer:
**Pet Pawtraits (hand-drawn portraits based on the photo or photos of your pets or other animal; multiple subjects are okay)
**Portraits (elegant, normal portraits of people)
**Pawsonality portraits (hand-drawn portraits that combine a person with something fantasy, like a favorite animal, pet, or superhero)
**Original Artwork
**Digital Prints (ready to print)
**Coloring Pages

Sizing details

I'm always up for an excuse to go to the craft store, so please feel free to run your custom sizes or materials by me. :-)

Otherwise, my default is multi-media sketch paper in these sizes:
2"x3"
2.5"x3.5"
4"x6"
5.5"x8.5"
5"x7"
7"x10"
8"x10"
9"x12"
11"x14"

Gift wrapping and packaging

Everything will be carefully packaged according to contents. For instance, a graphite pencil portrait will be treated with fixative, sealed in plastic, and then inserted between corrugated cardboard to prevent smudging and bending. A keychain will be bubble-wrapped to keep it protected during transit.

If you have any special wrapping or packaging requests, please contact me ahead of time so we can work it out. :-)
