Just finished five breed paintings. I started with my favorite breed, and I will move on from there. This will be sold as a print. The original is created on 8x10 canvas board without text. Ready to frame.  If  you wish to purchase the original contact me. I can eaisly add your pets name (or leave blank) to the painting.
If you have a favorite pet photo and would love a mixed media portrait piece created just for you. The link is below.

Looking for PET inspiration!

Not only is my life full of little girls but my family LOVES our furbabies. I am working on my latest artistic endeavour.........all about the love of animals. { The post below is the card I created for a rescue.}

 My next design was created of my new puppy. I take a digital picture, add a little photoshop.....paint...collage paint.....
Several layers of print paper....and more paint.... DONE!

This was created on an 8x10 canvas board.

 My vision is to create a full series of dog breeds, cats and rescue inspired pieces. I may take custom orders, contact me for more info. I'm looking for great pet pictures to use in this project. The best pics are close  up, color and of your pet only. I would like your permission to use the photo, so please don't send copyrighted professional photos (unless you are the photographer). The above was an iphone shot. If I use your photo to include in my series I will send you a free mini print and you will have the opportunity to purchase the original.

Please send your jpeg digital pictures to my email
post them here-

My work this summer---

I have been working most of the summer on a collaboration of sorts with writer Lisa Engelhardt. Together we have created a line of angels that will be produced and manufactured by Christian Gifts of Faith. These angels will be sold to retailers nationwide this fall. We are so excited, and eagerly awaiting our product samples. The end product is still a secret......but I can promise you this, our little creations will be wonderful gifts to all of those people in your life who you love.

I have 6 new angels that were created just for this new gift line. Here is a sneak peek, of one of the angels with words by Lisa.

I have several art shows lined up this season-
the next is

Monday Morning update!

Busy busy week! We have our new furbaby here! Everyone is learning to get along :) Dixie is happy to play all day with her new friend. The puppy play is extremely entertaining! We named him Quincy Brown.....but Big Brown is what we keep calling him. Sound familiar?

2008 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner

Our Big Brown weighs about a pound and half, but he is just as mighty.

I hate to sound like a broken record......but here it goes. This 12 week old PURE BRED chocolate toy poodle was dumped at our local animal shelter. Someone purchased him from a puppy mill/ puppy profiteer and changed their mind. The jerk that took him in to the shelter said he is sick. Which means they will euthanize him immediately, not bother to find him a home. My friend and "animal angel" rescuer was at the shelter collecting 29 full grown hurting and mistreated boxers that were seized from another puppy mill roundup. She was there to save them from termination and took this puppy too. Big Brown has kennel cough, a simple antibiotic treatable illness, no need to die.
Bottom line we need laws to stop the PUPPY MILLS. Breeders need to be licenced and inspected yearly. If you are reputable, you need to be willing to follow laws. If you want to make as much money as you can abusing and neglecting innocent creatures then I hope there is a spot for you in hell.

~This Friday is first FRidaY in BELLeVue~
