About the blogger(s): Ivana is a fine artist living and working in County Kildare, Ireland. She is mainly self-taught, but she also holds a Bachelor degree in fine art. She has many years experience painting and drawing. She has always had a great love of animals and this is why in 2009, she decided to start her own pet portrait studio. She works from her home and loves creating unique portraits of her clients’ pets. She loves a challenge and besides dogs, cats and horses, is open to create a portrait of any kind of pet. She herself has a Budgie (now eight years old) and a Labrador. She enjoys walks in nature and observing landscape around her. In her artwork she has used almost any material that came her way, including watercolour, acrylic, gouache, graphite and coloured pencils, lumo colours, ink and pastels. For her pet portraits she specialises in acrylic painting and graphite pencil drawing. She believes with every new pet portrait commission she is learning, not only about her media, but also about pets in general and how much they mean to their owners. Many clients get pet portraits of their deceased pets and it is so heart breaking. Pets really are a wonderful part of our lives and with her portraits, Ivana hopes for them to be remembered forever.
