My love of animals goes back as far as I can remember.
I spent a lot of time at Northlands racetrack where my mother worked, so naturally horses were my favourite animals (with dogs running a close second). Unfortunately we could not keep horses in our backyard in the city. To compensate I tried to have my own Noah's ark. At one point I had a dog, cat, budgie, guinea pig and a tank of fish!
I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts with a specialty in Painting and Drawing. I have been an illustrator and a graphic designer for nearly 20 years.
Doing these digital portraits just seems like the perfect outgrowth of my love of animals, my art background and my years of graphics and computers. I love how happy to makes people to see their pet portrait completed.
