Without pet parents, Petmasters wouldn't exist. What discount do you offer our dedicated members? (e.g. 20% off their first session, etc.)

Each additional animal in a portrait is half or less than half the cost of one animal. I also offer prints and notecards of the portrait painting at a reduced cost from my other notecards and prints.

What year did you begin serving pets?


How did you hone your craft?

I began serious study of watercolor in 1980 with Helen Stanley at SFCC(San Fransisco Community College). I went on to get a degree in Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design. Mostly, it is continual practice -- both drawing and painting from life and photos -- that keep my skills honed. I have both a passion for painting and a passion for nature.
