Welcome to my pet portrait, animal, and abstract art website! I love painting animals and hope to have the opportunity to create a beautiful, personalized painting for you. As you can see from the artwork below, my hand-painted pet portraits are extremely colorful, yet also have a likeness to the photo that I paint from. Animals have very colorful personalities and my pet portraits capture the very vibrant, colorful, and uniquely fun animal that is in each pet.  I am based in the USA in the beautiful state of Michigan. I mainly do business in the USA, but if you would like to work with me from over seas, please get in touch to inquire about a commission.

In additions to pet portraits, I love to paint abstract paintings. I use vibrant and bright colors, like my pet portraits, except I use palette knives to apply the paint. I apply the paint thick, to create a impasto technique, sometimes I will add cold wax, or marble dust to make it even thicker. I love to see the colors move and play with each other on the canvas.
