A pet portrait is one of my favorite paintings to work on, especially the eyes. I pride myself with getting the tiniest of details in each eye. 


I have been a long time fan of owls. I started painting them in 2007 and haven't stopped. I mostly paint whimsical owls but occasionally dabble in realism. Whimsical Owl family portraits are fun to create

with details of each person in the family I am

able to create an owl that embodies

each family member.
