Terry Albeert artist writer, pet sitter

Paintings by Terry Albert

My career as an artist didn't start with pet portraits, and it doesn't end there either. I love painting landscapes, florals and other subjects. I work in watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, and sometimes pastels. I have incorporated scenery and florals into my pet artwork, and like to branch out and make these the subjects of my work, not just the background. I am available for commissioned paintings of the subject of your choice.

One of my favorite projects is a "memory painting." I have drawn the home where my grandparents raised their seven children, and St. Michael's Mount in England where they courted. For one client, I painted an old family home, and had prints made so each person in the family could have a special keepsake depicting the place where they made so many loving memories. Prints can be personalized with a name on the mailbox or in a similar way for each recipient.

My family

My mother was an oil painter, and I first seriously studied painting by going to classes with her. While I was still in high school, we did shopping mall art shows together. 34 years after she passed away, I still use her easel to do my pastels, and her A-frames to display my work at shows. I still have her paint box and oil paints. Thanks Mom, and Dad, for encouraging me in my art career.
