A Little About Me & My Pets

It all started with Henry, my fluffy Maine Coon. He's a chatty, friendly guy who greets me and my guests with a "meow, meow". He was my first pet portrait model. Then along came Rory, my sleek panther. And then Love, the adopted outdoor cat, who patrols the garden. And then the chickens. Eight silly squawking ladies. If it wasn't obvious by now, I love animals. Each portrait I make for someone is a little glimpse into the love they have for their pet.

When I'm not equipped with a paintbrush, I spend my time cultivating our urban farm, playing with the cats and hanging with the chickens, riding my bike, taking long walks/hikes, learning, and cooking healthy meals.
