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.

Annie, A Painted Sketch


"Annie," image approximately 8" square on an 8" x 10" paper, Golden Open Acrylics on artists' multimedia board. This is a commissioned pet portrait depicting a wonderfully lucky Standard Poodle.

Annie was brought by a rescue group to my clients, a family known for their love of poodles. The rescue group was looking for a foster home that would allow them to get to know Annie better while looking for her new forever home.

Little did the rescue know, but Annie had already found her new home. She lasted a whole 5 hours as a foster dog before completely winning over the hearts of my clients and becoming best friends with their two other dogs.

Her family are proud foster flunkies, and she's a jolly, goofy, delightful addition to their household.

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


Did you know I accept commissions? That the majority of the paintings you see as part of the Painting a Dog a Day project are portraits done by request?

I work from your photos, creating treasured portraits like Allie's (immediately above) or delightful sketches like Annie's (at the very tippy top).

Sketches, done on paper, start at $49 and are priced based on density of detail.

Portraits are completed on museum quality panels and are priced from $209.

I also offer gift certificates for that discriminating and hard to shop for person on your list.

Shoot me an email and we can talk about your project. I'd love to paint for you!
