Welcome to Art from the Heart Portraits. My love and deep appreciation for animals has always been an important part of who I am. I've been a Veterinary Technician, and a Professional Pet Sitter, both of which I enjoyed immensely. Working with animals every day was a dream. I found a steady flow of inspiration from those I got to know through work, as well as my own ever-present menagerie. That experience is what led me to become a full time Artist. When I'm working on a piece, I can often get a feel for the subject...they "speak" to me, and slowly come to life on the paper.An original piece of art is a fantastic way to commemorate a moment in time with a loved one. A custom portrait also makes the perfect gift...truly a unique and heartfelt choice. When you choose a custom portrait, you can expect it to be carefully rendered in fine detail, using only the highest quality mediums and papers.Allow me to create a lasting treasure for you. All work is satisfaction guaranteed.
