About Christine Dion Art Studio

They say that a dog is "man's best friend". Imagine going to work with your best friend. You live with your best friend. You get to spend every day and night with your best friend. Your best friend may even save your life!  But you know your best friend can only be with you for a limited time.

This is the relationship between a K9 and a handler.

K9's come in all shapes, sizes and abilities. Some are strong like the Belgian Malinois or the German Shepherd. Others are inquisitive like the Plott Hound or the Bloodhound. Yet many other breeds provide comfort and care like Golden Retrievers and even Pomeranians!

My mission is to bring public awareness to the importance of the K9 and provide a priceless remembrance for the handler. I create K9 memorial portraits that are handcrafted pieces of original art. They bring endless comfort to the handlers and their families when the K9 is no longer by their side. The portrait is a wonderful celebration of their K9 and the life of service they lived together.  If I can bring a tear to the eyes of the handler who receives the portrait, I've accomplished my mission!

But given the work they do, a handler and their respective police departments shouldn't have to pay for a beautiful memorial portrait. That is where I need YOUR help. I create each K9 memorial portrait for free. I spend approximately 15-20 hours on each one, from rough sketches to a refined drawing, to the final art and ultimately framing it. I also purchase the frames ($100 each) out of my own pocket. Currently I am able to create a portrait every 2 weeks since I am also employed outside the studio as a full-time high school art teacher.

With your support, my goal is to be able to create 2 memorial portraits each week. This would result in 8 or 9 portraits each month for well-deserving K9 handlers. By subscribing to my Patreon page, your monthly donation will help me reduce my high school teaching hours and focus on creating the K9 memorial portraits that I'm incredibly passionate about.

Thank you so much for your support and please share this page with others to spread the news on how you can help me support the amazing K9 community! Check out the Tiers to see which level of support is best for you! Have a wonderful day!
