Fine Art Pencil Pet Portraits

Welcome to my Fine Art Pencil Pet Portrait Page. I am a professionally trained artist in life drawing and watercolor panting. I studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. I have spent most of my professional career as graphic designer for the last 30 years owning my own graphic design studio catering to professional corporations designing literature, high end photography and web design. I have never stopped my practice of the fine art, and still to this day, I am thrilled with the outcome of every commissioned piece of art – commercial to fine.

I have been drawing with pencil in this medium since I have been a child. I think I always drew this way. So much that I was excluded out of art competitions in elementary school so others could win. To this day I still love what the pencil can do to reveal the true essence of the subject matter.

Pet portraits are great for any occasion – birthdays, anniversary, wedding or Christmas gifts – of just a great keepsake for the family.
