Before Kathy was recognized for her three dimensional palette knife works, early in her career she was a noted pet portrait artist. She has now transitioned her animal portraiture into her textured style. This impasto technique lends itself well defining hair and other animal features. As an avid pet lover, she enjoys seeing the happiness in a pet owner’s eyes when they see their beloved pet painted on canvas. These paintings are created from photos the clients provide to her.
She takes a limited number of animal commissions. Pricing starts at $350 and allow approximately 6-8 weeks for completion.
