More of my works….

Our very own GRETA THUNBERG in an historic moment: That reason to lift up our hopes high; for Greta, for you and me, for the whole world; is because we all have acommon dream. The harbinger of that truth is shown in this unusual but charming portrait: With Greta Thunberg, being the smiley face shown here, and, with her hugging a doggie to her chest! Each time I gaze at this impossible (?) portrait, I am encouraged, hopeful and assured: That day will come! We’re with you, Greta!

How I work

Photo references: They are imperative to my work. Photos not taken with flash. Need not be composed of the subjects, in other words, they can be separate, say one of the dog form 3 years ago plus one of the human subject currently living.

Of course I need to know how I could ease your pain point: as a gentle remembrance? Or a celebration of both you and your furbabe’s lives? Or would my work elicit a kind closure between you and your dog?


Jan 2020 A Charcoal rubbing of a Maltese named “LUNCH” Measures 10 x 12.5 ” Subject is a senior dog, a lost canine, who came in from a stormy night. He has a terror of thunder and lightning – a scaredy doggo but fine, otherwise. The owners were never found.

eg. “Raw” material; photos, here, blurry 🙁 that I had to work extra hard on…….

The “raw” material that I worked with for “SARAH & BLOSSOM” – All photos, Theese however had been blurry but I did my best

Yay! “Sarah & Blossom” turned out well!

What I had achieved: Notice her new touseled hair in the wind…..It DOES feel like a breezy day, doesn’t it? And a subtle make-over with a fashion-uptick on a smarter outfit of a blue suit and a clean white shirt with large collar.

That carefree, open-mouthed joy on Sarah’s face……also that sparkle in her eyes ,speak it all. It has a spontaneous, outdoorsy ambience to the whole joint portrait.

I nailed it.

My work to ease in your day

Pastel Portrait SheepDog Charlize March 2018

My “mission”: Offering a means to ease your pain points in the course of your caring for your pet, you’d face. Or, to highlight the joy of having a loyal and faithful companion who seems to know when you are up or down in your mood.

The joy first. My work helps you to celebrate the lives of both you and your pet. Happy days are subtly captured, sunny, breezy, the two of you playing with him using his jaws feverishly on you but not for hurting. You with your hair all disheveled, laughing happily…. a moment in time, expressed on my watercolor portrait of you both.

Then when sadness inevitably comes, my portraits help to ease the pain.

Closures are facilitated, memories softened, they settle into a warm gentle mode……you’d see in my painting, that familiar sparkle in your friend’s eyes and suddenly you feel he is still with you in spirit even though you know too that he’s there in the grassy field prancing happily and freely with the angels.

Seasonal cards custom made with Your dog theme.

Or, where a relationship between a lass and a lad blooms, my work helps them express their feelings for each other more. and that’s of their pet, best of all!

My warm and cheerful portraits have wonderful roles to play in all dog owners and lovers’ lives……not to mention the marking of milestones in a family who has a beloved dog, or to celebrate historic matters and events – for posterity that will evoke, inspire and uplift spirits for many years or even generations to come.
