This is 20 x 18" acrylic of my beloved dog, Havi. I haven't done many dog portraits but it was really fun to do. Right now there are several artists that I know who have taken the pet portrait to a whole new level- great brushwork and innovative approaches, with backgrounds and colour. I'm inspired to paint more dogs.
I have been a full time artist for over 30 years. I live in a small village outside Vancouver with my husband Alan, who is also an artist. I love to paint and I love to teach people how to paint. When I'm not painting, my favorite thing to do is spend time outdoors with my dog, Havoc.
