Nice to meet you!

I am a proud Canadian, and have worked in the Ontario animation industry for 10+ years, as a colour key artist, background painter and matte painter. I graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in Animation from Sheridan College. I'm an animal lover, equestrian, and avid dessert enthusiast and am currently working on season one of Dino Ranch as a matte painter.

I recently started getting back into painting pet portraits for friends and family after falling in love with chalk pastel. I lost my amazing horse Lance just before Christmas in 2018 and going through that difficult loss made me realize how special an honour it was to be asked to paint a portrait of someone’s pet for them.

I have an amazing little family with my husband Josh and our puppy/raptor/mountain goat, Beatrice.

Brands I've worked with

  • Bubble Guppies
  • Corn & Peg

Pastel Commissions

I currently have a waiting list for commissions. When getting a portrait commissioned, I ask that you send as many high quality photos as possible digitally (or by mail) so we can find the best one possible for your portrait. Please also include a brief biography of your pet; their likes and dislikes, the things that make you smile about them. They are what makes your pet the individual character they are, and help me bring your painting to life!

Paintings take a while to complete because I'm currently working on them on a part time basis, so please plan ahead if you would like one for a special occasion (and let me know if you have a time frame you need the painting by in your message).

At this time, I am only including one animal per painting unless you order the largest size of 18X24 at an additional cost of $100 (up to two pets total).

If you are interested in commissioning a piece from me, or would like more info, please use the contact form to get in touch!
