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

More, please!

Lennox's portrait
and the real Lennox
This photo is a pet portrait artist's dream. I love it! And I wish I received more photos like this. Many of the portraits I'm asked to do are memorial portraits of dogs that have passed. Obviously in such cases, these kinds of photos aren't possible. But for the many dogs I've painted that are alive and well, I'd love to see snapshots of them with their portrait. So far I've only received six such photos. I want more, please!

With that said, I'm going to repeat an offer I made a while back:
Did I paint your dog, or a dog you know? Snap a photo of the dog + the portrait of him/her, send me the photo, and I'll send you a complimentary pack of greeting cards that feature the portrait!

Happy New Year!
