In the late 18th century people commission portraits of their prize winning farm animals. These portraits hung in pride of place and were shown proudly to all visitors. This practice was elevated to greater importance by Queen Victoria when she commissioned portraits of her favorite pets. One of these portraits is a personal favorite of mine, a painting of EOS by Sir Edwin Landseer. (See picture below)

          Other artists like George Stubbs, Maude Earle, John Emms, and A. J. Munnings have influenced me to continue this great tradition of honoring our animals with a classic portrait.

          I like to work primarily from photographs which I take myself. This allows me to get a feel for the animal's personality. But I will work with any photograph which has enough detail to allow me to fully express the subject's character.

          The essence of my work is not just to capture the likeness of the animal, but rather a sense of who they are.

          Please call me to see more drawings and paintings or to discuss a commission on 203 438 6527.
