The animal companions we share our lives with can touch our hearts like nothing else. An original oil portrait is a wonderful way to remember those special ones we have lost and to treasure those that are still with us. A portrait can be a unique gift that will be treasured for generations to come.
You may not know me personally, but one look at my painting lets you know how I
feel about animals. When a client selects me to paint a portrait, I feel deeply
honored striving to make each new painting my best yet. My objective is to fulfill
each client’s expectations to complete satisfaction. I feel a sincere and
intense responsibility to interpret my subjects features and character not only
accurately but with sensitivity and utmost care. That is why you can have complete
confidence in a portrait painted by me.
The Venetian oil painting technique used by the old masters from Carravaggio to
Rubens is a system of layering paint in order to achieve the luminosity and depth
we so love in those classic paintings. Each layer must dry before the next is applied,
thus, the extended time element for this style of painting. Only the highest quality
materials are used for portrait work.
"The painting leaves me breathless. I will cherish it forever. The portrait of Bianca,
which hangs above our fireplace, is a constant reminder of what a special dog she was."

"Your portrait of Molly is beautiful. It captures her spirit and personality...
alert, quizzical, loving and loyal attitude. The eyes, muzzle, nose, ears, and the
individual hairs... all this from a photogragh. You are extremely talented.
I will look at this painting every day of my life. I will be forever indebted
and appreciative to Kay and Larry for this gift... and to you for your ability
to execute it. Thank you so very much."
