Artist Captures Pets' Personalities with Portraiture


There can be an unconditional bond when it comes to our pets. For centuries, dogs have been coined as “man’s best friend” as bonds of unfailing love, devotion and loyal companionship deepen with time. I was moved when I saw the life that artist Karin Jacobs captures in her original pet commissions. The animals’ personalities were on full display, and the sincerity of their souls echoed in their eyes. Jacobs feels overjoyed with the fact that her clients “feel” their beloved dog or cat in her artwork.
