Get to Know

Welcome to Cleverpup on Artfire! Welcome! I am a full time artist, cartoonist and animator living in by the shores of beautiful Flathead Lake in Montana. I moved here from Washington State a year ago and before that I lived in Texas and Ohio. I have over 25 years of experience in both graphic arts and animation and have a BFA from the Columbus College of Design. I have sold on ebay since 2001 under the ebay id cleverpupart and have 100% positive feedback. I love making art that puts a smile on the face and a sparkle in the eye, I love all animals and thats why they show up in my paintings and prints. I have been a life long dog lover and have had many four footed friends sharing my home. I love horses too but haven't figured out a way to fit a horse into my garage. My favorite medium has been acrylics and watercolors. I also have prints of my paintings for sale. I have painted on canvas, board,wood,and recycled cardboard and found objects. I also do digital art in Photoshop and Illustrator. I also sell custom made greeting cards, mugs,t shirts and more on my zazzle and cafepress stores under cleverpupart. Art runs in the family as my husband is a very talented painter and graphic designer. He is getting back into fine art as he has been a very successful illustrator and designer for 30 years, check out his web page at All my art pieces come from a smoke free home and are shipped promptly. I do accept custom and commissions, please email for size and prices. Please contact me with any problems or questions and I will get back to you right away.
