Our two dogs, Duke and Stanley, are beloved family members with really distinctive personalities. The fact that our furry family members stay with us for so few years is heartbreaking yet we accept that heartbreak for the joy of having them in our lives. Barb’s renditions of both dogs somehow magically captured their spirit, their humor, their gentleness, and their spunk.

The eyes in the portraits are amazing and, especially for Stanley who is no longer with us, looking at the picture is like looking at that wonderful and very missed dog in person. Barb’s talent and attention to detail is so impressive. The SPEED with which she can produce these spectacular portraits indicates the woman must never sleep! We LOVE our portraits and will cherish them for years to come.”
