The Artistic Process:
Each item is an original work of art. The artist first communicates with you to learn about your pet and the story you are looking to tell through the portrait. Is your pet sweet? feisty? happy? lazy? grumpy? She then sketches out the portrait and creates a color palette and selection of colorful textured fabrics that will will bring out the essence of your furry friend. Next, the artist cuts the individual fabric like puzzle pieces. The portrait and pillow are then hand sewn together by the artist on her vintage treadle sewing machine she calls "Bessie."
