Artist’s Statement

As an animal lover and an artist it only made sense for Janet Aleid from Grafton, MA to do pet portraits. She prefers to meet the pet and take photos herself whenever possible, but not a necessity.

Painting mostly in acrylics, she likes to use a technique called “scrumbling” to get that silky look to the fur for a finishing touch.

Meeting the pet helps her understand and paint the pet’s personality into the portrait.
