Pet Artist NC Sketch pet memorial from your photo.

As a lifetime artist I have always looked for subjects that inspires and motivates me to create more art. I have found my passion and calling in the form of animal art. There are just too many wonderful things about animals and their meaning to us to put into words, so I choose to do it through my art. I strive to capture emotion, love, and also speak to the human condition though the eyes of our furry, feathered, and even scaled companions.

Commissioning work is a very individual process, and therefore I will discuss your requirements and provide a quote before starting your artwork.
