Super Talented Friends!

I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many talented and inspiring friends.

I am in awe of the work they create. Many of them do commission work and I want to introduce them to you in case you want to do a special project from photographs of your pets.

Everyone has a different style. Art is such a personal thing that I never feel that there is competition, just abundance of joy to connect to and share.

Meet Manon Doyle

Meet Nancy Medina

Meet Judy Mackey

Meet Sandy Mastroni

Meet Linda O'Neil

Meet Leslie Moore

Leigh is currently having a call for entries for special projects she is creating this year.
If you are interested in having a portrait possibly being involved, please contact her.
I am so lucky to be able to tap into such a wonderful pool of creative and supportive energy. I appreciate all of you!
