To give you an idea of how a picture appears when recreated in quilled form I have included some of the photos I used to create the pet portraits. I often have an additional picture(s) for reference to help me get a feel for the subject. I try to capture some of the essence of the subject in my portraits. So as you look through the gallery think about the pictures you have of your pet that would really look good quilled and get in touch. The pet portraits I’ve done have been of current pets but also memorial pictures of special pets that have crossed-over. They make great gifts over which to share memories.

The colorful representations of critters start with a basic outline or shape that I fill in with a variety of shapes to create a piece that is fun.
