Offering custom Pastel and Charcoal Portraits
of your animal companions and portraits of children with their pets…

Sandra Huston

Hello, and welcome to my website. 2015 marked the 25th year that I have been painting animals in pastels. And it's true what they say; time flies when your having fun. It’s been a wonderful journey painting commissioned pet portraits from your favorite photographs over the years and I will continue painting a limited number of custom portraits for my clients each year so that you can display the love and bond that you have developed with your animal companions and keep these cherished memories alive for a lifetime. Although I paint most animals, my first love has always been horses, particularly the Morgan horse and draft horses. In 2010 I included a wildlife series of the magnificent big cats and will be expanding this series later this year. I not only enjoy creating original art through my Charcoal & Pastel paintings but also through my photography. As you will find when you scroll down we added a link to my "Loons of Tacoma Lakes" book, and a link to examples of the pastel and charcoal art work that I have completed for my clients. We have also added a link to my new Gift Shop Page where you can order prints, canvas gallery wrap and note cards of my art work and photography through Fine Art America and also a link to my framed original art work that is available for sale. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me at and if you encounter any missing links please let me know.
