I've always loved 2 things: animals and art.

Some things never change. I once got in trouble for whittling soap into a dog shape with a knife when my mom wasn't home. She wasn't an artist, and didn't understand my tiny urge to create! Another time, I asked if she would color with me. I decided we would both draw a fox, then accused her of "NOT EVEN TRYING!!" when I saw the awkward stick-fox she had attempted. I didn't realize that I got all artistic talent from my dad, but at least I got my sense of humor from my mom (she still thinks this was funny).

When I was in school, I couldn't wait for every art class. I liked all things aesthetic: fashion, painting, photos, interiors, cartoons, name it. I originally majored in photography in college and have enjoyed working with various mediums, but I'm best as a graphic designer. I've definitely found my niche in digital art.

After earning my BA in Graphic Design, I moved to Los Angeles and landed a few different design jobs. Everything from a small boutique design studio to corporate creative work for a big company. I quickly discovered that the cold corporate world was not for me and quit. I just wanted to make art that actually made people happy.

I started doing as much freelancing as I could and that's when I opened my first Etsy shop. I listed a bunch of different customizable design ideas, and noticed that one listing was much more popular than the rest: my modern stylized pet portraits. That took off immediately, and after a couple months I was thrilled to open my second Etsy shop for pet artwork only.

Now I'm launching my own site, expanding my business, growing as an artist/entrepreneur, and drawing some of the cutest pets I've ever seen. I know I'm very lucky to be able to do what I love, and to be loving what I do!

***Featured in the April 2012 issue of Cesar's Way (Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer's) Magazine, and has been showcased on as well as Design*Sponge's 2011 Gift Guide for Pets!***

Welcome! This shop is dedicated to creating modern, custom portraits of your lovable pets. I will transform your pet's photo into a chic graphic design that will add some serious style to your home. Each portrait is completely personalized, digitally illustrated from your favorite photo of your best friend, with the background customized to the color and pattern of your choice.

I'm a Southern-California based Graphic Artist with 6 years of professional experience, who has always had a great love for animals. As a pet owner, dog foster, and animal rescue advocate, it brings me so much joy to have the opportunity to combine my passion for animals with my career. I enjoy creating modern, fun portraits that capture the attitude and energy of each pet, and make their owners smile for years to come.

I also want my shop to help animals: 10% of all sales will be donated to Much Love Animal Rescue. They're an organization dedicated to rescuing abused, neglected and homeless animals from the streets and shelters of Los Angeles and placing them in loving homes.

Please make your payment upon purchase via Paypal.

My turnaround time can be pretty speedy, but it could also take up to a few weeks to fulfill your order, depending on my current wait-list. If you need a rush order, please message me first and I will do my best to work with you to make that happen (*See more details below). Please allow ample time ordering for the holidays or special occasions!

I’ll email you a proof of your design before the final print is made. As soon as you give me the OK, your completed print will be safely packaged in a sturdy mailer and sent via USPS (trackable "Priority Mail" for orders in the USA, "First-Class Mail International" for everywhere else.

The delivery time varies by destination, and can't be guaranteed. Let me know if you need your print by a certain date. I can set up an expedited USPS or UPS shipment if requested. If you are outside the USA and would like your package to be trackable, let me know that you'd like to upgrade your shipping to "Priority Mail International." I would just create a custom listing reflecting the added cost.
