I have always had a dog in my life and Ive had all sorts of pets from mutts to pure bred, they have been my lifelong companions. Its sad that their lives are so short. I wish they could live longer. The hardest thing that you can do is say goodbye to your pet.
I decided, quite young, to start to paint portraits. My brother was a professional photographer and he
had me printing photos in the bathroom with a make shift lab. He turned me on to design and formatting a painting. It is so important to find the best possible angle when you take that picture. It also started me on painting my pets. I tried Gouache (which they use to call poster paints) first then went right into oils after my Mother bought me my first oil set. I loved it and I’m still painting after 50 years.
My dog portraits are affordable and painted with attention to detail and appearance. With your feedback we can decide on a photo and background that will not only enhance your dogs portrait but integrate with your homes decor.
My love for animals show in all my pet portraits. Fine art work makes the perfect Christmas, Birthday, Fathers or Mothers day - A gift that cannot be duplicated!
Paintings are a wonderful surprise for a friend. All you need to start is one or two clear photos or digital images so I can begin your oil painting.
A letter from a customer about my dog portraits.
Oh Lorri.... I don’t know what to say! My husband and I are both emotional. You have captured Percy the way we knew and loved him. His eyes were always bright and
looked as if he held great wisdom. The fact that you can portray this in a portrait is amazing. I just don’t think any words can express how appreciative we are, and how beautiful the portrait is.
Thank you Lorri!!!!

I have often visited a Vet for my two pups and while I sit there I see many anxious owners with very sick pets. Sometimes these pets do not live much longer. They always say they wished they could have taken pictures of
their pets when they were puppies or in happier times.
I encourage you to take photos of your pet and take them often. Even if you don’t buy from me, you should take a photo and have it made into a work of art for you to keep.
Here is a picture of my dog. He was sitting on the couch when I snapped his picture. He is the dearest friend I have and he has me well trained.
When my dog was a puppy he looked so cute. Just a bundle of fluff. I'm glad we took lots of pictures because a dog can change from week to week. So take your camera and make sure you take some pictures once every week after you bring him home. These pictures will be and remain priceless.
I also do pet photography. I charge $50.00 plus gas money for the photo shoot and you will get an 8 x 10 print on watercolor paper and a CD of all the pictures I take.
So if you are in the Alpharetta, Georgia Area please give me a call and we can set up a time for a photo session of your dog or puppy. Phone 650-619-0910
