"Your dog is aliiiive!"

I've always been a big Tim Burton fan and I have been waiting to see his new "Frankenweenie" for awhile! When I saw it, I honestly felt unlike anything I've ever felt before. The inspiration flowing through me was almost unbearable! I had to get to work right away! This is my version of the late, beloved Sparky. Combine my pet portraiture and spooky illustration :)

If you haven't seen the film, get in the Halloween spirit and check it out! Very worthwhile!

The 7th annual Pet Expo was a great experience! It was my first public event showcasing my love for pet portraiture. I had always been interested in replicating animals on paper since I was a little girl. My childhood dog, Shep, was my muse for years and years! So needless to say, I've had a lot of practice! Here are some shots from the Expo. I did some short sketches of pets that were there and offered prints & business cards. I think it was a pretty successful day! Busy and fun!

If interested in a commission for the holidays, I'm accepting them until the first week of December, just to make sure they all get out in time. To inquire about pricing, you can always contact me at!
