About the Artist Susan Becker: I create intimate, intense animal portraiture that interprets a petís sense of dignity and their unique personality of joy, desire, or even sorrow, so that each furry individual can be celebrated and cherished, both in the moment, and for life. I hope my art brings joy to animal lovers, raises funds for animal rescue, and inspires others to learn about and protect our precious friends.
My oil paintings are vibrant interpretations designed to touch the heart, capture an essence, and represent a spirit and love for life. They are windows into the furriest souls as I see them, tangible, yet magical salutes to the animal-human emotional connection.
†The eyes are created first so that right from the start, there is another being here to celebrate and play with me, quite a personal and sensual experience.†It feels as if I come to know each individual intimately, bonding in the hours we spend together in creative process.††I fall in love with every animal I paint.
No matter what stage of life your pet is in, a custom oil painting or pencil drawing is an elegant keepsake of your cherished companion. Later, it can be a meaningful and even therapeutic way in which to remember and memorialize your treasured friend.
