Newspaper and Radio Interview

I recently did an interview for the newspaper and radio! Not gonna lie, I was nervous about how my voice would sound on the radio. However, the artist & interviewer, Rob Hessler, was great to work with and it turned out to be a fun experience.  You can listen to the interview HERE The interview will stay in the archives for a couple months and then it will reside permanently on Spotify.

Pet Portraits - Part 2

Pet Portraits - Part 2

I previously shared how I develop a pet portrait. In this post I would like to share more complex commissions.  The most frequent request is for a multiple figure portrait where the client has several pets they would like to incorporate into one scene. When multiple pets need to be incorporated it created challenges like accurately representing the size of each pet in proportion to each other.
