I usually paint in an impressionistic style, but when it comes to animals, my approach changes completely and becomes more quirky and folky. I paint animals as I know them to be - humorous, whimsical, tender, and very dear to my heart. These characteristics are what I attempt to capture when I paint a pet's portrait.
Through paintings and words, this book celebrates the bond between people and their pets. Contents include 33 of my dog and cat portraits, and each painting is accompanied by the animal's photo, story, and three life lessons I learned while getting to know the animal.
