I love the "Dogs Around the Lakes" series! Also, the portrait of our late, beloved "Hazel" is a treasure!

Sarah has created two beautiful, customized portraits for me. One was for my friend's grandmother's two dogs--she now has it framed in her house and I hear positive comments about it it every time I see her. The other was for one of my good friends, whose dog had recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. This one was especially meaningful, and was a great way to pay tribute to such a good canine friend! Sarah makes truly beautiful, heartfelt art.

The oil-pastel portrait of our Border Terrier, Taika, captured her personality perfectly!

I first encountered Sarah's art at a charity art event for A Rotta Love Plus, where she had on display a stunning painting of my pit bull, Josie, who had been rescued by ARLP earlier that year. It was a fun, beautiful, piece that captured the essence of Josie's personality, and I soon commissioned Sarah to do a matching painting of my other dog. She did an equally wonderful job with that second painting and I have received so many compliments on both. Not only does Sarah create graceful works of art, but she has a huge heart for dogs in need, and it was a pleasure to do business with her. I highly recommend Sarah and her artwork.
