About The Artist:

In Loving Memory Of Marsanne, RahRah, and Vinnie

I grew up with dogs, Maltese dogs. When I was 11 my mom bred and showed Maltese--that's when my love affair with dogs began. I have had dogs most of my life. After marriage, children, PhD in psychology and building a vineyard, I decided to peruse a life long passion--painting man's best friend. I studied privately for 2 years with a renowned registered AKC dog artist, as well as several accomplished oil painters. Every painting is a labor of love, capturing the essence of each individual personality--I love painting dogs!
