Anyone who knows me knows that I love Labs!

As an artist I guess it is no surprise that I express my passion for Labrador Retrievers through my art. From the moment our first Lab, Maddie walked through my studio door she became my muse. Maddie would sit quietly in all kinds of outfits while I took lots of photos to use as reference. Maddie is no longer with us, but her spirit still inspires my work. Now our current Lab, Milo, serves as my model and muse and keeps me company in my studio.

Everyday I feel blessed to be an artist and everyday I feel so lucky to have a Lab. My heart fills with love and my inspiration soars whenever a Lab is by my side.

I hope you enjoy my Labrador artwork as much as I enjoy creating it. If you own a Lab I hope you will connect with the images through your love of these wonderful souls. If you don’t own a Lab, I hope the images will connect with you through their themes and their spirit.

The Art-Making Process

Each image I create is unique, but the basic process for developing them follows a similar pattern. After dressing up one of our Labs in costume, I take lots of reference shots. Then, I head to my studio to create the detailed pencil drawing. When the artwork is finished, I scan the drawing into my computer and add layers and layers of color using Adobe Photoshop.

Thank you so much for taking a look at my work. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My images are available for licensing and are currently available as framed and unframed prints. If you don't see your Lab's color just let me know. I can most likely create the version you need.
