I specialize in the beautiful and striking effect of graphite pencil illustration. My drawings have won many awards and have been published on magazine covers, program covers and in a variety of publications. My inspiration comes from a life-long love of animals and nature. Information on my Custom Pencil or Pen & Ink Portraits can be found at my website, www.PencilPlace.com.
This year I was contacted by Cher H. of Canada. She wanted to commission a portrait of her brother’s dog as a gift for his upcoming wedding. As the family is quite spread out, and they were all meeting in CA for the wedding, this made shipping the portrait and consequently carrying it in a suitcase problematic at best! Cher was delighted that I would supply a scan of the portrait so that she would have something to easily print out and transport as a gift. As the wedded couple lives Sedona, I was able to deliver the gift personally upon their return!
“Scooter” is a rather famous dog in Sedona, AZ. She was rescued by some wonderfully caring people in 2009. At the time, Scooter was giving birth to a litter of puppies … in the street! She has come to be loved by all who meet her, and I was so very honored to be chosen to create her portrait!
