Thank you for visiting my site.  Take a moment and visit my store.

I am a self-taught artist with over 40 years of experience.  Creating art and writing has always been my "go to" place, where the world and all its issues disappear.  Drawing my inspiration from the world around me ignites my imagination.  I still get excited when a blank piece of paper comes alive with what I have created.   As an artist, my favorite two mediums of choice are pen and ink and watercolor.   Now I share with you those paintings I have done and the opportunity to commission a portrait of your favorite pet.

About Phoeboo Designs


Meet Phoebe, also known as "Phoeboo", my four and a half pound red stag miniature pincher.  Phoeboo lived to be seventeen years old.  We miss her....but we are thankful that we chose to feature her on our website.  Her drawing was the first of twenty. The collection of "Puppies in the garden" has been reproduced on note cards which are available for purchase both retail and wholesale.   "Puppies in the garden" and additional designs are also available at www.phoeboodesigns.com.
