Pet Portraits & Wildlife Art
I was born and raised in the small town of Ingersoll in Ontario, Canada. Surrounded by scenic parks, trails and farmland, my hometown is still one of my favourite places to sketch and photograph wildlife. I enjoy working in several art mediums, including: pen and ink, coloured pencil and pyrography.
As far back as I can remember, I have loved being around animals and drawing them. I have fond memories of caring for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, gerbils, hamsters, mice, birds, reptiles and rescued wildlife. My appreciation for nature continues to inspire me as I strive to capture its beauty in my art.
Creating custom pet portraits for fellow animal lovers has become my specialty. I work from client provided photographs to create beautiful keepsake art pieces that will last a lifetime. If you are interested in placing a custom-made order for yourself, or for a loved one, please contact me for more information.

My specialty is creating custom pet portraits for fellow animal lovers. I require detailed, high resolution reference photographs to achieve the best end result. After I have received your reference photos and we have discussed the type of portrait you would like to commission, I can provide you with a quote and an expected delivery date.
All portraits are handmade using artist grade materials and sized to fit standard picture frames for your convenience. In-progress photos of the project will be sent to you to ensure you are completely satisfied. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to begin work, with the balance due upon completion. I accept payment through Interac e-Transfer or PayPal. Shipping is available within Canada and the United States.
Each commissioned piece is truly unique, requiring a different amount of time to complete. Certain times of the year become very busy for me as holiday seasons approach. My schedule can quickly fill up, limiting the number of gift portraits I can produce. Therefore, I recommend contacting me at least 2 months in advance of when you would like to receive your finished portrait to ensure timely delivery.
The picture Rhonda made for me of my sweet puppy is perfect. The time she puts into her art and the detail is incredible. You will not be disappointed!

Rhonda did an amazing dolphin art piece for me. I absolutely love it! I have yet to frame it, but it is going to look beautiful on my wall. Her passion and skill for drawing is clearly visible in her work. I've looked at many of her pieces and I'm amazed at them all. Absolutely beautiful. You won't be disappointed! Thank you again Rhonda for my amazing dolphin picture.
