EXPLORATIONS OF THE HEART

If you find yourself drawn to art that you relate to or feel emotionally, than you are in the right place. My mission is to unify by cultivating feelings of empathy and compassion through my art. This is especially apparent in my heart print series of work. Each heart print signifies an emotion I have been through. By sharing it with you I am inviting you to experience empathy and compassion through these feelings and let you know, that you are not alone. I welcome you to take a look around, experience my art, and engage with me! Visit my Blog, Instagram, or Facebook Page for info about my art and upcoming shows or events!

News & Pet Portrait of Your Furbaby

It's been a while, but as many of you know, I am working on ramping up my art business right now! I am working on some new art, adding a pet portrait by commission option, creating some new versions of my old art, looking into printing on fabric, and also doing some research on how I can make my artwork more sustainable and less of a load on the environment.

As part of this growth, I am excited to announce that I will now be offering monotypes of pets! This is due to the popularity of the monotype I did of Mowgli, my dog. I have gotten a lot of compliments on it and suggestions that I offer portraits in addition to all my other awesome work. ;)

The idea is to capture the feeling of your pet, not a realistic representation, that is why I will be spending time listening to your stories and getting to know your pet. It is a very special opportunity to not only capture your pets personality and feelings, but also to have a colorful piece of art in your home that not only memorializes the feelings you have about your pet, but really means something to you. 

I recently had a friend ask me to do a portrait of her cat. I was honored, but then I found out that her cat had passed away about a month ago. I was saddened by her loss. It is important that we take the time to remember our pets in a special way and to really enjoy and capture those special moments of our pet while they are still alive. 

To help save all those great memories, I am offering to do a pet portrait photo book in addition to the portrait. Many of us are so busy with our lives and all those photos just end up filling memory on our computers, but this is a great way to create a keepsake of your special family member. The memory book will include photos of your pet that I took, as well as some of your favorites and a short synopsis of your pets life based on our conversations! Plus, it will have the certificate of authenticity and a blurb about my creative process while making your pet's portrait at the end of the book! 

More information on pricing etc is in the Services section of my website. Please email, Facebook Messenger me or text me if you or anyone you know are interested! 

Have a great rest of the summer and I look forward to interacting with all of you much more on my Blog, Facebook, & Instagram in the coming months!
