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

This is Haley, the Goldendoodle. She belongs to Michelle, one of the owners of Camp Bow Wow in Cherry Hill, NJ. My parents' dog, Abby, is a regular at Camp Bow Wow. Michelle graciously lets me put up a bit of advertising in the lobby. As a thank-you, I painted this portrait of Haley, which Michelle agreed to hang up at Bow Wow.

I'm a big fan of Goldendoodles. They are big and fluffy, yet lanky. And very sweet. I see a lot of them at the dog beach we frequent in the summertime.

Thank you, Michelle. I hope this portrait of Haley makes you smile....and makes your clients ask,"Who painted that?"
