About ME


I've been obsessed with creating art from the very moment I could first hold a crayon. I'll never forget that magical feeling of creating a drawing and the reward of making someone smile. 

Today, I still treasure and carry this feeling with me as a dog-obsessed portrait artist. Inspired by my own two beloved American bulldogs, I understand firsthand that special connection between a pet and their owner. There is so much we learn from raising a puppy to adulthood to grieving their loss – compassion, unconditional love, gratitude – and painting this truth is what drives me. Preserving the dog and human love story makes me smile every day, and I hope it makes you smile as well.


Founded in Vancouver in 2004 as Savvy Studios, Christine has been a local & international vendor of authentic painted pet portraits.

Inspired by anything and everything including rainbows, pups and unicorns.  It's magically delicious when I can  add a little whimsy into a painting. Lifestyle blogger, pet photographer Anya @girlplusbulldogpet gave me the awesome opportunity to paint her uni-bully-corn Ro Ro.
