About

Here to create with love.

Welcome to my shop. I am a graduate from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Painting and drawing is my release. Animals are my expertise!

I grew up all over Bucks County and lived on a farm for a short period of time. I can count and name the abundance of animals and pets I’ve known, but we would be here for a while. As a kid I found myself riding horses in the woods, training our family dog agility in high school, and then moving to the big city with my cat to attend art school in 2007. I then lost my beloved cat of 12 years right after college in 2012, he was more like a dog actually, the best of both worlds. I painted him into many of my original paintings and called him my muse. When he passed it shook my world, many of my peers didn’t understand what I was going through. It is so hard to explain the love and loss of a pet. They teach us so much, so much some never learn.

After showing the paintings of my cat I noticed many inquiries for custom pet portraits. This began somewhat of a snowball effect which brought me here today, and I can thank my cat for that. I don’t have much time to make original paintings these days, and that’s just fine, I would only end up with piles and piles of portraits of my current rescued dog, Miley. Find her bio in production partners.

Welcome to my shop! Welcome all animal lovers!

All of the artwork in my shop is hand painted, hand drawn, and signed by me.

Photo Requests for Custom Pet Portraits:
Please send me a private conversation with your best and favorite photo(s) of your pet.
A clear, high resolution photo will make for a beautiful drawing or painting. If you do not have one please send what you have and I will see if I can improve it. A photo that was taken outside in natural daylight, out of direct sunlight, will show your pet’s true colors and details, and a photo taken at your pet’s eye level will show me their true essence.

Please note: Combining multiple photos tends to create a loss of likeness due to different lighting and camera angles in each photo. Please be sure to choose one photo for me to paint from to ensure that I capture the overall likeness of your pet. I can also help you choose one if you have multiple favorites. Just send them my way.

Portraits will be painted from your photo. Be sure to choose one that is clear enough to see your pet's eyes at eye level, and preferably in natural light to show your pet's exact colors.

Once I receive your photo and we have discussed the artwork please submit payment, once payment has been made I will begin.

Returns and exchange details
Custom paintings and drawings will be viewed by the buyer before shipment. I can make most requested changes, please note that this will delay processing times that will be extended over new orders with deadlines. I can send progress photos upon request.

Paintings on round surfaces such as mugs and ornaments will make the most sense in one’s hand, viewed in person (3D). A still photo of one angle will not capture the painting in its entirety. I can send photos of multiple angles upon request.

There are no refunds for custom paintings and drawings. All custom pieces will be made for you and customized for you. Please let me know if there are any changes you may like to make within 24 hours after purchase. Feel free to contact me anytime during the process.

I take pride in capturing the essence and personality of your pet. It would be a privilege and an honor to do so! Please keep in mind that these are pieces of art, representational paintings. Please visit my full shop to view my style.

All shipments are insured, packaged securely and marked fragile, if your artwork is damaged during shipment please contact me immediately upon receiving it. Please send a photo of the box with it’s fragile stickers in view next to the damaged piece for claim purposes.

Please take note that my commissioned portraits are painted from your photo.

All original pieces in this shop were photographed in natural light.

Shipping
If you would like your package shipped to a different address as a gift, please adjust the shipping address to the correct addressee and address before check out.

I use USPS to ship all of my pieces domestic and abroad unless specified otherwise.

All shipments will come with insurance, tracking, and original pieces will come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

-Custom drawings and paintings are shipped unmated and unframed.

- Paintings will be shipped on their stretchers and unframed, for larger works please take notice to their specific guidelines. If you would like something shipped in a different way please contact me. (see shipping for domestic and international methods)

-All work is cared for and protected when shipped. If there is a matter where something is lost or damaged in transit please hang on to the original packaging after sending me photos of the damages until the claim is settled, once settled you will be refunded.

Feel free to contact me anytime through a conversation if a problem arises, and we will work together to sort it out.

FOR DOMESTIC ORDERS- Paintings will be mailed on stretchers, bubble wrapped and supported with foam and cardboard to protect them.

FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS expect up to 45 days for shipment due to
customs and delays. For Outside of North America- Paintings larger than 16x20 can only be shipped if they are rolled and shipped in a tube. You will have to have them mounted on a panel or stretched onto a wooden frame. Your local frame shop can do this for you.

If a country charges a customs import fee, taxes, and other duties it is the responsibility of the buyer, if you are unsure of the fees please check into it in advance of ordering.

I use recycled and biodegradable packaging. Please do the same and reuse the materials ♻️
Additional policies and FAQs
Be sure to keep your oil paintings and drawings out of direct sunlight to avoid discoloration, also avoid drastic temperature changes and humidity to prevent cracking and tearing.

My ceramic mugs and shot glasses are painted with non-toxic paint. I do not paint the inside of the mugs or shot glasses. They are not microwave safe, gently hand washing in warm water is always recommended for fine art collectibles.

My ornaments and urns are painted with lasting enamel and are sealed with a satin finish.I can add hand written text to the ornament at no extra charge, such as their name and the year. Please send the text along with your photo. I add small green designs around the text on the reverse side of the ornaments and small red dots throughout the ornament. Please specify if you'd like a different design or no design.

My graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil drawings are sealed to prevent smudging and fading.

I can add text to my ceramic/porcelain and glass pieces (usually on the reverse side) I recommend adding text to the final matting and framework for work on paper, canvas, and panel.

I may use your photos to promote my final products on social media and future listings. If this is something that you feel uncomfortable with please let me know.

Thank you for stopping through 💕
