Holiday Pet Portraits at the Gallery Upstairs at Harrop Restaurant

We had a blast at our Holiday Pet Portrait Photo Shoot at the beginning of December. A HUGE thank you to Suzanne and Sylvia from Woof Walking & Co for making the day a success!! A HUGE thank you goes out to Hedi of The Gallery Upstairs at Harrop Restaurant for allowing us to use the gorgeous property as our backdrop. A BIG thanks to Mutt Life for donating some doggy treat take-aways, and of course, a BIG thank you for everyone who came out, even in the less than ideal weather.

Water Colour Paintings from a 2.5 Year Old Child

Yes, I am a proud mom, and wanted to share some watercolour paintings that my toddler has created. These are truly his own, done on 4"x6" watercolour paper, with real watercolour paint. He creates whatever strikes his fancy that particular day with no guidance or direction from me. I give him the materials, I leave the room (don't worry, he's still in my line of site), he sits and creates (every now and then I have to re-focus him) and then tells me when he's done. I love that he enjoys painting so much, and I hope that this joy of creating lasts throughout his life.

Dramatic Lighting - Portrait Photographer in Milton

Not really what I was originally going for with these shots ... but in the end, I liked the effect. Some dramatic husband lighting - lots of fun! And of course, black and white really is my favorite.

New Fine Art Website - Acrylic Artist in Milton

I've decided to launch a separate website for my fine art work and plan to continuously add new pieces for sale. Please visit to view the new site.

Below is one of the pieces that I have available for purchase.

Though my main subject of focus is animals, I will also be adding different subject matter, namely plant life and possibly some abstract pieces.

If you are interested in giving one of my paintings or drawings a new home, please feel free to contact me any time at and "like" me on facebook at: juliedeansartist.

I will still be available for pet portrait commissions and am considering taking on commissions of nature and wildlife as well.
