Recently April was interviewed by http://www.phxpeople.com/.
Here is a small excerpt of what you'll find along with a video of April talking about her many talents. Please take a look and if you love it like we do, SHARE! Thanks pet friends!
Part of the Interview:
How do you hope your work impacts people?
"The pet portraits side, I know it impacts people, because they tell me when their animals pass, they always have something visible to remember them by. Many, many people over the years have told me what a gift that was, and it always feels good to hear that.
I love painting dogs, and I know the relationship I had with mine and the current ones I have now will never leave, but having a visual of them would be awesome all the time, because I know how much I love them. They’re part of our family."
