Professional paintings from photos and live sketches

Hi. My name is Fred. I’m a professional artist/painter from Carlsbad, Ca,
and I want to paint your pooch. I graduated with a BFA in Advertising from
Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, Ca) in 1988, and a few years ago I decided to follow my passion for painting pets and to land on a career I could sustain well beyond my already 28 years of advertising life. You could say my business had finally gone to the dogs!


With each painting I strive to capture the expression and the personality of
each of my furry clients, so that when you see their portrait, time after time,
their uniqueness will always shine right through.


Look at my samples, and then let me capture your pet’s personality with paint!

loyal subjects.

I’m a dog magnet.”
