charcoal, pastel portraits of your four-legged family members

a bit about me

my background

Art and design have been my passion and my creative outlet in both my professional and personal life. From Interiors to Fashion Design, from furniture to accessories, I love to design. Coming back to Kansas City a few years ago, I have rediscovered my love of drawing... so here I am... a bit of my history...  

my medium

The drawings are done in charcoal and pastels working on archival acid free paper. 

my inspiration

I'm inspired by our pets (although, they are really our 4-legged family members, our children and our unconditional friends) who are as unique as we are. My inspiration comes from getting to know each of them through your eyes, through a few important questions and hopefully some great photos. I do not copy a photo. The portrait is a compilation of images and your very valuable input.

contact me

I'd love to hear from you and answer any questions on process, timing, pricing and anything else you'd like to know.

thanks, patty
