Paintings With Soul

Since October 2006 I've been a daily painter, creating a new pet portrait at least 5 times per week. Over the years I've expanded my offerings to include a variety of animals, pets, race horses, children and other treasured heirlooms. In addition, I accept a limited number of commissions each year.

In 2015 I am honored to be the Kentucky Derby Artist.

You may use the links below right to receive my daily paintings via email or to follow my blog with a feed. I post additional info, including in-process jpgs and other related information, on the studio Facebook page as well.

Meanwhile, thanks
so much for your continued support of my artwork.

Lazing Around


"Lazing Around (Kipper and Nealie)," 8" x 10", acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord, commissioned pet portrait of two rescued Cairn Terriers, private collection (THANK YOU!). Inquiries (including booking your own pet portrait, from miniature size [4" x 4"] to larger than life) may always come to me.

Kipper and Nealie are puppy mill mamas who got their second chance through Col. Potter Cairn Rescue Network and my client. It's hard to imagine these little vivacious souls trapped in stacks of crates, allowed the barest of human contact, with absolutely no regard for their physical or mental health as they were bred repeatedly.

Yet that's what puppy mills do. It's all about delivering as many puppies as possible, without consideration of responsible breeding, the health of the individual, or even perpetuity of a breed. Please, if you are looking to add a dog to your family, find a responsible breeder or adopt through a shelter or rescue. DO NOT buy through pet shops, ever, or consider purchasing through third parties who do not stand behind their dogs for their lifetime.

I'm painting another version of Kipper and Nealie for my solo show at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary this summer. You are invited to join the festivities (and myself) in Kanab at the end of August 2010, including the creation of Dog-a-Day milestone painting #1000.

Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
