I have always been involved in "art" in one form or another including water color painting. I currently hand paint piggy banks for children and adults. Photography is also a passion of mine and all photos on my products are photos taken by me. Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I have been involved in dog training for many years. The photos of dogs, cats, etc. I use in my products are dogs I currently have or have had in the past. To me, art, in any form, is an expression of one's passions.
