WOOF! Thank you for visiting i heart dogs studio, the home of pet portraits lovingly painted by me, Christine Humphries Throckmorton. Since 2007, I have created custom pet portraits, prints, cards, and more, all featuring lovable canines (and the occasional feline). Scroll down, take a look around, click away. You'll see a wide variety of pet portraits, and get to know a bit about the girl behind the canvas.

PLEASE NOTE: Now that I have a toddler, I am no longer accepting commissions. For now, I am shelving the paintbrushes and just enjoying being MOM. I have a variety of original paintings, prints, and cards available in my shop, however, and there is a lot of dog art to peruse in the pages of this here blog. Enjoy.

they can show me in the world.” ~ Samuel Johnson

I was commissioned by a dear friend of the family to paint her dog Cozmo. This little cutie, a Pomeranian/Eskimo mix, recently passed on. He meant the world to his family and so I feel honored to paint him. This was my first all-white dog painting. White fur presents interesting painting challenges, which I enjoy. Good thing, because I have a Westie painting in progress.
