Creating portraits of the souls that steal our hearts

Pets are a very important part of our lives and my artwork captures their unconditional love.  Animal and art lovers agree original artwork is a lifetime treasure.  I specialize in drawing realistic portraits from your photographs. I use artist grade graphite pencils on pure cotton fiber paper, so durable the artwork will remain beautiful forever.   As an artist and animal lover there is nothing more rewarding than knowing my artwork lives on in someone’s life.

My pet drawings are created from photos and really are the best gifts for pet owners and art lovers.   It's a gift that's always a wonderful surprise.

 I create dog portraits, cat portraits, other animals and human portraits as well.  My pencil drawings are realistic renderings that capture the unique personalities and individual characters of each subject.   Contact me today and I’ll help you through the photo selection process, provide options on composition and price.  Pricing starts at $150 and generally takes 3 to 4 weeks to complete the artwork.  

Zeagle is always by my side!
