New Chapters.

     Life is like chapters in a book, the last few years have been the part where the hardships and battles occur. Working to follow my dream of being a full time artist painting beautiful dogs, then battling breast cancer and caring for ill parents.  All through this my amazing puppy muses have been by my side reminding me to treasure the little things in life and giving me love, comfort ,moments of joy and laughter.  Helping me with little goals, for example my goal to walk them everyday all during treatment even if only around the block even on the bad days. We did it!  Now they continue to remind me to not give up on my dream of being a full time working artist. So I am hoping that the clouds are clearing and the sun will shine through and the next chapters are the happy ones with my beautiful dogs by my side.

How Fast They Do Grow!

" The Muses" 2013
Lilly age 3, Ella age 1
       My little Muse Ella turned 1 year old on February 3rd.  It seems like we just
brought home this little 3 pound puppy yesterday.  Such a reminder of how quickly time
flies.  I feel that these little furry angels come into our lives because we need them to teach
us and guide us.  I know that Lilly changed my life by bringing me back to my passion for
art.  Ella I think is to remind me to laugh more.  She is as my husband has dubbed her
" A Little Stinker"  Her wiggle but and always with a toy in her mouth can not help but make
you smile.  I am so thankful for her and Lilly everyday.

This summer I was contacted by the company that
does the gift bags for the Oscars and Grammys  and
asked to be in their HollyWOOF gift bags that they
give to 25 A-list dog loving celebrities.  They would
all get a portrait of one of their loved dogs by me.
We were so excited and honored to be chosen to be
included in this exciting program.  Through this
I have met many wonderful, dog loving people and
been introduced to wonderful dog sites and blogs
that received the press on this.  Thank you all for
you kind words and support of my artwork and
love of painting dogs.  Keep you all posted of
any developments! Hopefully I will get to paint
some celebrity dogs!
