Christine Throckmorton creates portraits that celebrate the significance of dogs in our lives. Her goal is to capture the personality and soul of her clients' canine companions, so that they may be  celebrated and immortalized through her art. Christine's paintings are serious enough to honor the  emotional connection we have to our pets, but with a touch of whimsy to acknowledge how fun and goofy dogs can be.

“I think every pet deserves a portrait. Our pets bring so much joy into our lives, and their lives are way too short—why not celebrate them in art? I don't have much hanging on my own walls, but I proudly display portraits of my dog. They were created by me, as well as my artist friends. And I'm honored that my art graces the walls of dog lovers around the world.” - Christine
