Hi there, I'm Bev, a Brit now living in North Eastern Ohio, USA.

What started out as a way to memorialize our pet Dog Bailey, blossomed into a full-time Portrait business.
I was a keen pencil artist as a teenager but life happened and it wasn’t until 20 years later did I rekindle my love for making beautiful art.

When we lost our pup to Cancer at a young age I wanted to create a piece that my family could cherish for many years to come, something that would capture his personality, character and of course his beauty, all in one (proud Dog Mom here!).


  • I taught myself Photoshop 💻
  • Started to play around with various digital art brushes 🖌️
  • I was amazed at the technology options available 💿
  • I was having so much fun! 💃

The portrait process is pretty straightforward, so listen up!

  • I require a high-resolution photo to work from 📷
  • I always send proofs to you for checking 🕵️
  • Once you are happy with your custom portrait, and only then...... 😊
  • I print your portrait on Fine Art Watercolor paper 📜
  • All custom work comes with complimentary shipping in the USA 📦

Whether you are a Realtor looking to WOW your clients with the perfect Closing Gift, or a Pet Lover searching for a thoughtful memorial present, my portraits will be sure to please.

I also give back ❤️🐶 The Creative Pioneer / and my ETSY store CreativePioneer 🐱❤️ regularly donates to animal charities in our community and beyond, your purchase helps to make a difference 💚

Thanks for reading my story

Bev 🤗
