|MacKaylin and Nuggy|
Having drawn pet portraits for the best part of two decades, I've met young animal friends and watched them grow up in their forever homes. I've captured entire fur families and filled walls with successive generations of four legged family members.
Liezel and Rob Mortimer's are one such example. I met Liezel about 10 years ago when she commissioned a portrait of her Golden Retriever called Dylan.
|Drew and Ripley|
Even though I met Ripley years ago, and haven't actually met any of the other furry members of the Mortimer household, I form a connection with these animals. I Learn their stories and follow their lives over the years. Rips and Drew are real heart-dogs – its pure love that I feel coming from them.
What can I say... I love my job!
