I have always loved animals and painting, so it gives me great pleasure to combine these two lifelong passions and to be able to offer you a personalized animal portrait in the innovative contemporary style that I have developed through many hours of rigorous observation, study, and experimentation. My art is both expressive and realistic with delicate details, rich colors and tactile textures.
I hold a BFA from The University of Pennsylvania in coordination with The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and a Master of Arts in Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts in London. While at PAFA I spent a year studying animal drawing and honing my skills to be able to capture the unique characteristics of non-human subjects in a way that can only be achieved through drawing from life. Besides my fine art commissions, my work has been included in numerous gallery exhibitions, and I have experience with freelance graphic design and illustration as well as teaching art classes for children. I truly enjoy devoting my time to animal portraiture and I look forward to working with you to create a beautiful and lasting image to honor your beloved pet.
