He had a dog named PJ. By the time I came along, my husband and PJ had been together for over 10 years. When PJ turned 15, I decided to paint a picture of him for my husband's christmas present. When my husband unwrapped the painting, he looked at me and said, "You have to do this for other people." And that's how I got started painting pets.
I have since gotten back into my oil painting as well. I am having the best time painting all the things I have wanted to paint for a long time. One of my favorite subjects is our dog, Lucky.
I hope you enjoy them!
I've always said if I could paint all day, I would.
I have been painting and drawing all my life. I never thought you could make a living at it until I earned a scholarship to the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio. I graduated with a degree in graphic design and spent the next 15 years working as a graphic designer. As I got busier, my painting fell by the wayside.
