A Bit About Me

I am the sole artist behind Quirky Dog Artwork. Though I am half French and half Brazilian, I am based in the Washington, DC metro area. I began drawing and painting in high school and haven't stopped since, having taken studio art throughout high school and culminating in AP art. I began my college career as a Graphic Design major, but quickly learned that I much preferred the fine art world. Since then I have worked as a veterinary technician and a National zoo intern, fostering my love for animals. Eventually I started my own business, Quirky Dog Artwork, combining my love of animals and art by doing custom pet portraits.

"Quirky Dog Art created and captured the essence of my beloved dog with an original portrait."
