Carol Shelkin is probably best known for her amazing mosaic portraits of humans, however she has done several really wonderful animal mosaics, including a few pups. Carol paints with stained glass and is well known in the mosaic world. She is a master of shadow and light. Her subjects have a 3 dimensional quality that is hard to achieve with glass. In this portrait of Mandy I just adore the way she has captured the natural shape of the ears and the variety of her cuts keep your eyes moving.
I am a commercial artist focused on custom pet portraits. I have a fine art background and I work with a wacom tablet to create digital paintings. My work brings terrific like minded people into my life. I am married with three scottish terriers. I run the company artpaw.com
Through my art dog blog I hope to connect with other artists and all kinds of pet lovers.
