The two paintings Robin did of my dogs were phenomenal! I was blown away at how identical the painting where to my dogs, and I am so grateful that I purchased these! Thanks again Robin!

Border collies are so fun to paint. They are always smiling!

New studio assistant! We're dog sitting Bailey, a golden doodle. Doesn't she look more oodle than golden? :)
On my easel! I wasn't sure the photo would translate into a good painting but some changes to the composition made this one of my favorites!

Pet, People and House Portraits in Oils on Canvas, Watercolors and Ink

I love to paint and am a full time portrait painter. I've won local awards, but my favorite recognition, is when I'm selected to draw or paint someone's pet or house or loved one. They make such great gifts, and I love being "in on" the process. Unlike many artists, I absolutely love the commission process. I guarantee my work 100%.

All of my art is original, made the old fashioned way with brush or pencil in hand, not computer generated anything! I love to capture the personality of pets and even houses seem to have a personality! *
