Generally speaking, the people who see art as way of connecting instead of as a way of showing off are the kind of people who respect artists. Whenever some art world big shot snubs me for painting portraits—and especially pet portraits!—I just roll my eyes. Their understanding of art feels empty to me.

You can commission me to paint your kitty or your kid. For prints and pillows with the sweet tuxedo cat’s portrait on them, visit my Redbubble shop.
