Animal Portraits

Pet CollageAlthough I’m mostly recognized for my three dimensional palette knife works, early in my career I was noted pet portrait artist. My pet portraits are created with oil paints in the traditional Old Master’s technique.  As an avid pet lover, I enjoy seeing the happiness in a pet owner’s eyes when they see their beloved pet painted on canvas. These paintings are created from photos that my clients provide to me. My commissioned animal portraits are proudly displayed in homes throughout the country.

Although I’m currently focusing on my textured painting technique, I still take a limited number of animal commissions annually. Pricing starts at $400 and please allow 6-8 weeks for completion.
