With a view of artfully expressing their personality.
Welcome to my page!
I'm incredibly excited to share with you my expression of love, which I have in abundance for dogs and the special bond I share with them.
Artist Kim Hundley
Hi, my name is Kim, and I am a national award-winning artist, specializing in dogs. I am on the Artists' Registry of the Dog Museum of America. I have won numerous placements at many shows, including the Art Show at the Dog Show.
I have been training and showing dogs over 30 years. Currently, I own three Pembroke Welsh Corgis, which compete in agility, obedience, and tracking.
I attended the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. I've been drawing dogs and other animals since I could hold a pencil at age four. I did my first portrait at age 15, and it sold for $10.00.
How to Create Your Pet Portrait
1. Choose a Medium
Pen & Ink
2. Select Your Photographs
While selecting photos to send to me, please select high quality and high-resolution photos. If you don't have any good photos, it's better to take new pictures so I can capture the detail and personality of your pet.
Please get down on the animal's level. Don't shoot from above, shooting down distorts the view, like changing the angle of the neck and shoulders. Don't include the entire yard or room; try to make the pet the main focus of the photo. The most realistic lighting is outdoors without the strong sun - either overcast or in a light shadow. The flash can cause weird light effects and distortion. Strong sunlight creates dark shadows.
I can usually work with any photo, especially if the pet has passed, but remember, the better the photo, the better the portrait will be. I can also combine photos; if you like the face on one, but the ears on another. I also do not need multiple pets to be together in the photo. I need a rough idea of their size relationship.
Simply supply me with a good photo or photos of your pet, and I will create a portrait of your beloved pet!
