I’m a pet portrait artist in the Bay Area. I recently moved from Bakersfield, California, where I spent the better part of the last few years independently fostering, vaccinating, and re-homing local stray animals at no cost to the new families who adopted them. My primary goal was helping homeless animals in need and finding them forever homes, to get them off the streets.
My sole method for funding vaccinations, supplies, and re-homing costs was selling pet portraits and custom animal art under my brand Petey’s Paws Studio. I am a self-taught watercolor artist and recently branched out to acrylic on canvas. I also offer custom digital pet or animal portraits, pet portrait stickers, event invitation designs, keychains, and more.
My art has blossomed from a passion to help animals. I’m new to the art community and hope to share joy through my art in a way that animals have brought joy to me.
