How I Got Started:
I was doing foster care for several of the local rescues when I had to move into an apartment that would not let me foster. I wanted to still be able to give back to the rescues and I also wanted to be able to tell the dogs stories so I started to create the books using the one rescue I had adopted as my first story. I started drawing the dogs that I had photographed and writing stories about things that had happened when they were in my care. Every pet has a story to tell and it is really fun to put them in their own little story book. The pet portraits is something I have been doing all my life. Part of the proceeds from both my book sales and portrait sales go back to animal rescues or individual pets in need of medical help.
