Dusty - Pooches Portraits by M A Palmer

Welcome to Pooches Portraits by M A Palmer

My name is Melanie and I live in Phoenix, AZ.
I grew up in a creative family: my father sang and played violin, my mother a piano teacher and my late grandmother an accomplished artist. All of us children were exposed to a variety of the arts. I was a ballerina with a passion for anything creative. My younger sister (who has the voice of an angel) and I have carried those artistic passions with us throughout our lives. We used our artistic passions as hobbies while doing the normal life routines of working, raising children and forging a place in this world.

After a life changing automobile accident, I found I was no longer able to pursue the physical enjoyments I had always taken for granted. Fortunately, the art lessons taken under Mimi’s tutelage, re-ignited a desire for creating beautiful pictures with pencil and paper. Having always loved dogs, I focused my passion on creating personalized portraits that capture the individual personality of precious pets. Every day I find it amazing that a simple piece of paper and a few colored pencils can create a piece of art that evokes emotions of joy and happiness to the recipient of that work.
