My name is Susan Eckles. I discovered a talent for drawing pets at age 70, and it quickly became an all-consuming passion to create images of animals that capture their personalities and spirits...and your imagination! Whether your favorites are dogs, cats, horses, cattle, birds, or wild creatures of the woodland, mountains, jungles, or sky, I create portraits that draw you in, instilling memories or fantasies.

Finally, I am offering very special introductory pricing on original portraits, gift certificates, and prints. I have spent the last year primarily drawing for friends and family. I now happily invite you to join them at very special pricing.
I work primarily from photos, so the quality of the photos you provide is key to capturing the essence of your pet. There may be several drafts and I may request additional photos if we don't have sufficient clarity in the details. We may talk or correspond many times during the process so we achieve your goals. A portrait generally takes 20-40 hours to complete and no shortcuts will be taken, so plenty of lead time is helpful.
Your portrait is not complete until you love it!
Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and a brief description of your pet, goals, and time frame. If you are targeting a birthday, anniversary, graduation, Christmas, Hanukkah, or other special event, please give me as much lead time as possible. I will make every effort to meet your deadline, but will not sacrifice quality.
