I am a Dublin based artist, graduating from Fine Art in 2010. This is my latest venture into illustration born from a love of all pawed and non-pawed creatures.
Pawpawpawpawprints.com came about with thanks to my loyal companion Milo. Milo was my 14 year old family shih tzu and he died in 2014. I was heartbroken. It took about a year to bring myself around to it, but I decided that I wanted a portrait of him for myself and anyone in my family who would like it. Having recently completed a course in Adobe Illustrator I tried my hand at drawing Milo using my new found skills. My family were delighted with the drawing and it was special for me to remember my little pal. Then one or two other family members requested some drawings and suggested that there may be a place on the market for an idea like this. So I set up an etsy page, got going on social media and have been expanding on my business knowledge since August 2015. My background is in Fine Art and I make abstract paintings and sculptures, so this business is a great way for me to marry my love of being creative and my sincere love for animals. It is hugely rewarding when I give a pet owner a portrait of their animal, it means a lot to them and that happiness in turn means a lot to me. I have drawn a few portraits of pets who have died and I understand how important it is to have a way to remember our pet family members, I'm delighted that I can do that for people.
If you like what you see please spread the word on social media, it's hugely appreciated.
