I have been a dog portrait artist since 1980, specializing in custom dog portraits and sporting dog art for individuals, corporations and dog organizations. The dog portraits that I create are done in oil paint and come custom framed and ready to hang in your home or office.
My art training includes a Bachelor of Fine Art ('78) and Master of Art ('80) degrees in painting from the University of Tulsa and since receiving my Masters degree my sole occupation has been that of an artist.
Each year I have the honor of painting some of the most distinguished sporting dogs in the world. I am proud to be the official artist for the following championships and award programs:
- The National Pointing Dog Championship
- Purina's Outstanding Field Trial Awards (7 paintings)
- The Continental Championship
- Brittany of the Year Award
- N.S.T.R.A. Champion of Champions
- American Field Quail Futurity
- American Field Pheasant Futurity
- The National Open Shooting Dog Championship
As a dog owner myself, I understand the bond between you and your favorite canine hunting partner. I was raised training, hunting and field trialing sporting dogs. This, coupled with my background in the fine arts, gives me the ability to paint your dog accurately and to place him in a hunting situation that is real. Your painting will honor your special partner in a work of quality fine art. An original oil painting is the ultimate way to pay tribute to your dog(s) and your memories of wonderful days spent afield.
Commissioned dog portraits are scheduled on a first come first serve basis. Due to time limitations a waiting period should be expected. Custom dog portraits start at $1,200.
