A love of art and animals has defined my life from a young age – but it’s only recently that I actually combined the two.
The catalyst was the addition of a loveable, silly, snorting and occasionally (okay… frequently) flatulent Boston Terrier into our home – Lola. Lola is our best friend and “fur-baby.” She is also my muse.
Once I began painting and drawing Lola, I soon began painting the beloved pets of friends and family members… and I haven’t been able to stop creating pet portraits since. I am passionate about capturing the spirit and personality of these furry (and feathered) friends that love us unconditionally.
Pet portraits aside: I have a BFA in illustration from Columbus College of Art & Design. My illustrations and designs have been commissioned by Newbury Comics, The Clarks Company, Sire Records, Polaroid and Epson. My illustrations have also been featured in Spin, Juxtapoz and Weekly Dig Boston.
I hope to work with you soon…
