Description

Choose your medium:

Option 1: WATERCOLOR ON PAPER

Watercolor is my primary medium and what I’m most known for. With this selection, you can expect a combination of realistic features and impressionistic colors and texture. I make use of layered washes, making smooth gradations, and lots of splatter. Check out the example portraits.

Option 2: OIL ON PAPER (Dry Brush)

My dry brush paintings are created using black oil paint on smooth watercolor paper. Making use of the white paper as highlights, these pieces are often mistaken for photographs. You can expect very precise brushstrokes and lots of blending to make for a smooth one of a kind piece.

Option 3: OIL ON CANVAS (Traditional)

The third option is a traditional oil painting on canvas. These pieces are created using a fair amount of paint and texture, broad impressionistic brush strokes, and natural colors. A great option for those who favor traditional artwork.

Option 4: OIL ON CANVAS (Modern Expressive)

Also painted with oil on canvas, with this option, I paint in a more expressive manner. These oil paintings are painted in a modern impasto style using my hands, fingers, and palette knives as my tools. With bold colors, deep texture, focusing on feeling rather than precision, you’re sure to get a one of kind piece.

Select a Size:

My most popular size tends to be 11×14 or 16×20. However, if you’re looking for a size not listed, you may shoot me an email and I can send you a quote for that specific size.

Multiple pets within a single portrait are available in 16×20 paintings or larger. If you would like multiple pets within a portrait please add 15% for each additional pet. Additional fees may apply for complicated backdrops and scenery.
