Special Instructions

About the artist: Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang have been favorites of mine since I was a child, so my fascinationwith dogs started early.  Snoopy was my inspiration, and I was sketching him all the time!  My father wrote to Charles Shultz, the cartoonist responsible for Snoopy, about my obsession with his little dog.  I received a ltter back from Mr. Schulz, which is one of my favorite possessions, hand signed circa 1976.

After several years working as a graphic artist, I decided to pursue my first love of drawing and painting. 

Finding a connection with dogs has been easy for me, as I am drawn to thei rhonesty, desire to please, and lack of pretension.  I prefer painting dogs to peeople because these of these very qualities that I admire. 

I think dogs take the edge off any setting, whether depicted in a painting, or sitting on your sofa.  Above all, I hope to give them a voice through my paintings and drawings.  I have completed many commissions throughout the United States and will continue to feature dogs as the focus of my work.
