Once year I have had one of my pieces featured in American Kennel Club’s- Canine Art Gallery. Because of this exposure, I have had more people from around the country see my art and contact me. Tess’s owner, Kate, had tried to have portraits done of Tess in the past by other artist and was disappointed in the results. When she saw my work in the magazine, she decided to commission me to do a portrait of her beloved Tess. She was “thrilled” by the result! Likewise, I am thrilled that she is happy!
