My love of dogs started from a very young age. I was attached at the hip to our family's golden retriever, Nugget, and have always been a "dog person."
I graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle, with a BA in Interdisciplinary Visual Art. I started painting pet portraits in 2018 when I was trying to think of original Christmas gifts for family members. They were a hit, so I decided to try my hand at creating freelance artwork. I feel so lucky to have gotten to paint so many of your beloved pets since then.
I live in Bellingham, Washington with my Australian Shepherd, Dezi, and Chocolate Lab, Bodhi.
