Welcome to my online portfolio


Quite simply, my life revolves around animals! I have shared my life with dogs, cats, horses, goats, and cows. As an artist, painting pets was a natural calling for me.  A commissioned, hand painted portrait of your pet will be a lasting memory as well as a cherished memorial to those you once loved and have passed over the rainbow bridge.  My goal is to capture the spirit and personality of your pet. A hand painted watercolor portrait is the perfect, thoughtful gift for someone who has it all.  

Thanks for perusing!

“Thank you so much for bringing a bright light into the life of someone who truly needed it. This was by far the best gift I could have given my sister. Funny, true story... After she opened it she set the painting against the couch and gazed at it. The cat, who was Shadow's best buddy walked up, meowed and then laid down in front of the painting staring. After a few more meows, the cat walked up to the painting and looked behind it and then again in front, while continuing to meow. If I had not seen this with my own eyes, I never would have believed it! We call it our Christmas miracle. My sister says she will find the cat occasionally staring at the painting on the wall.” :: Nancy in California

She cried when she saw it was a painting of her precious girl. And thank you for getting the mat, frame and for a stupendous wrap job! We both love it!” :: Dick in Ormond Beach

“Kelly, thank you for a truly personalized, special gift. Tears were streaming down her face as my daughter opened this gift. Her bulldogs are her babies and were the ring bearers in her wedding. She has selected a prominent place in her living room to show off her portrait. I need to be honest and tell you you need to charge more! Thanks so much.” :: Pat Rogers, Holly Hill, Florida.
