About

My Dogs First Inspired me to Paint!

Thanks for checking out my shop!! I am a wife and mother to 2 girls (in college now) and 4 dogs. We live in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia --Milton. I am a self-taught artist; I wanted to pursue an art education, but since I wasn't paying for my education, I was discouraged from this pursuit and got a degree in Journalism and Advertising instead. I worked for 14 years in corporate marketing and met my husband at work, so it was meant to be this way!!

I started my shop about 7 years ago when I quit my full-time job to stay at home with my girls and dogs. I was coaxed by repetitive dreams and then inspired to paint my dogs. I started selling a few original paintings on Etsy and eBay. Then I commissioned pet portraits on and off for about 5 years. I have painted so many animals over the past 9 years, but only post a small variety of "best sellers" here. I have been in museum shows, local art festivals, galleries, pet stores, magazine covers and even on TV to paint a newscaster's dog on Good Morning Atlanta!

My love for dogs drives most of my work, but currently I've been compelled to dabble with different subjects and abstract designs. Sort of an experimental phase for me and really satisfies my creative side. I've stopped selling pet portrait commissions in the meantime to pursue this new creative journey. Painting client's pets is very rewarding, however it is very technical-- not very creative. From time to time I may offer commissions, so please message me if you want to be notified when I do! Thanks for looking at my work and contact me if you have any comments or suggestions.
My best,
Carol

    I'm a self-taught artist with over 12 years of painting experience. I offer commissioned pet portraits and other custom art. I believe in the healing properties of art in color, form and process. I also make jewelry and painted recycled wood items.
