lifelong artist and animal lover, Mitzi Rothman, has
focused on portraits of pets since 1994. Having done
quite a collection of cats and dogs in a variety of
breeds, Mitzi captures in pastels, the detached elegance
of the inscrutable feline, the exuberance and genial
vitality of the steadfast canine.
These pastels drawn with wit and charm are more than
just renderings of these well-loved companions. These

Although preferring to meet and photograph her subjects
in person, she has worked very successfully with pet
owners "long distance" using family photos as well as
other information provided by the owner.
These lively paintings have been commissioned by and for
pet lovers as gifts for birthdays, anniversaries,
holidays, or for just about any reason. Mitzi welcomes
the opportunity to speak with you about the possibility
of doing a portrait of your pet, and answer any
questions you may have.
