Custom Pet Portraits

Unsurprisingly, pet portraits are the top commission request that I receive. As the mother of Bambi and Sparkle the Chihuahuas, I get it. Seriously, I’m obsessed. Please check out my services page to see all that I offer. Here are a few of my favorites!


The Sophie Show Illustrations

The Sofie Show brings together artists and musicians for a gallery event to support the Wisconsin Humane Society. Hosted by Zizzo Group in Milwaukee's Third Ward to bid on one-of-a-kind animal-themed artwork, guests listened to a full line-up of musicians, sipped local craft beer, and supported a doggone great cause all at the same time. My 2019 illustration focused on “Itty Bitty Breeds.”
