The first thing I ever wanted to be as a kid was an author and illustrator. Not an astronaut, not a veterinarian, not a princess. I continued to draw throughout school, did a brief stint in architecture (loved the drafting, hated the computers) and now just work in my free time. I’ll be posting pictures of my things periodically, I love feedback so let me know what you think.

My dog Aspen (right) and my brother’s dog Rowdy. This is my favorite technique for drawing, I love the negative effect and these drawings don’t take too long. I’m working on getting an Etsy shop set up for this style of custom pictures- not just pets! Contact me if you have questions.

  1. Wow… when you said “doodles” I thought you meant cartoon-ish stick figures. This is actually amazing! Great job.

  3. Beautiful sketch! Is that a husky on the right? I grew up with one as a kid. The Governor. He was massive. Like having a wolf walking around the neighborhood with you. Anyway, like a said, gorgeous artwork.

    • It’s a technique I learned while I was studying architecture. I work off a photograph, black presentation board and transfer paper. Thank you for your comment!
