I am a self employed artist who specializes in painting pet portraits. I work in acrylic because I am committed to living my life and consequently doing my artwork in as ecologically a friendly manner as is possible so I use non-toxic materials and no-animal derived brushes. I am blessed that what was once my hobby and a passion I had for painting cats, dogs and all manner of animals has now become my vocation.
I live in Northern California with my husband Marty and our three cats Mackie, Shadow and Nilo. In addition to painting my other passion is food. I spend many hours in the kitchen cooking, baking, preserving, pickling, and anything else food related. Marty and I also love trying new restaurants and I am a food blogger and frequent Yelper.
