Christmas is around the corner!
I've discounted my pet portraits by 20% through December 31, 2022. If you'd like to take advantage of this discount, send me an email with your favorite photo, and let's get started on your Pet Memory in Watercolor!
I'd love to paint for you!
I like to paint all subject matter, but my preferred focus is Pet Portraits. I like to keep their memory alive in a life-like watercolor portrait.
Un-interrupted painting, music, a bouquet of fresh flowers, the fragrance from a lit candle, and a glass of fine wine. These are my key ingredients to a successful painting experience. Cheers!

I commissioned Laura to paint 2 pictures of my Fiance's dog as a birthday gift for her! I could not have come up with a better gift! She was overwhelmed. Once they are framed, she wants them in her office at work. This is something that she will keep and enjoy for the rest of her life. Her Dog is only 7 and he is like a son to her and very much part of our daily life.
Thank you Laura, the likeness is excellent, especially his eyes, we feel like he is looking at us!

Wow! Laura made my two large loves come alive on my office wall. Their personalities come through in such a bright and cheerful way. I smile when I see this every time!

Birdie was my loyal friend, a friend I will never forget. I am so thankful for Laura, another true friend of mine. Laura did not just paint her picture, but her personality. Birdie's kindness came through her eyes, as she is begging you to throw the ball and her smile which she always had. The painting took a little of my broken heart away. Thank you again, Laura!

I met Laura through an auction sponsored by the Humane Society of Broward County during this year's Walk for the Animals event. She was generous enough to donate her amazing artistic talent with a pet portrait which I bid on and won. I could not be happier with the finished results of the portrait as she has captured my Ricky to a tee. It's like looking at a photograph, it's so lifelike. Ricky will be 12 years old this month and I realize that my time grows shorter as each year passes, but now I have something to help me keep Ricky with me forever.

I cannot thank Laura enough for the joy and peace her painting has brought us. Just looking at Lucky’s portrait, feels like he is right here with us loving and adoring us each and everyday. We feel like we still have a part of him here in our home. The best part of our day is looking up and seeing him looking at us. Thank you so much Laura for capturing every detail and soul of our Lucky. We will be forever grateful to you for the amazing talent you have in bringing comfort and joy to those who have lost such a special part of their family.
