"I have been a lifelong artist, having started painting and drawing when I was 7 years old. I've enjoyed painting on many surfaces, spending many years painting on functional pieces. I have an intense passion for all animals and greatly enjoy creating portraits of them. A percentage of every portrait is donated to animal rescue and animal therapy organizations. I enjoy creating a painting of an animal that reflects its personality and character, while reflecting its habitat or home environment."
