About Me

Hi World!

I'M Melanie Anderson

Thank you for visiting my site! I am so glad you have taken the time to look at my art. I get so much joy from painting people's pets, and I hope you can feel that through my work. It all started many years ago when I painted my cherished poodle, Trixie. I enjoyed that experience so much that I continued to paint dogs. The dog paintings resonated with others and requests for commissioned work began to happen. Now, hundreds of commissions and many years later, I continue to paint custom pet portraits capturing the expression and personality of my client’s unique pets for them to display and enjoy in their homes and offices. Please allow me to create a custom, one-of-a kind pet portrait that will immortalize your cherished pet. If a custom portrait is not your preference, I invite you to shop the many options of art prints, merchandise, and swag from my collection. Thank you for visiting my site!

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.

Why I paint dogs... "Dogs are gifts wrapped in spontaneity and freshness.  A dog's experience is always new, even when catching the Frisbee for the fifty-seventh time.  With open hearts and soaring spirits, they brightly color our world.  My paintings represent the pure nature of liberation that dogs embody.  They remind me to be fully present and free.  I am fortunate to have two willing subjects of my own to inspire me daily and provide me with an endless amount of subject matter."
