Welcome to my website!   My name is Carrie Ruane, and Im a professional portrait artist.   I have provided custom drawings of beloved pets and people to happy customers since 1991.   My work is an expression of my artistic vision: my love for the beauty of animals, birds, and the natural world.   My goal is to capture the personality and spirit of my subjects in a soft yet realistic style.  
My specialty is colored pencil, but I am also skilled in working with graphite pencils, pen and ink, watercolors, and acrylics.   I am not limited to just people and pets I am able to recreate any kind of subject matter from your photos.   Send me your favorite photos and I will create for you a unique, one-of-a-kind portrait.   View my portrait galleries to see samples of my work, and visit my portraits page to find out how you can commission your own beautiful drawing today!

About
I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania, where I began my interest in drawing and art at an early age.   While in high school, I was commissioned to do my first pet portrait, a landscape drawing of three dogs and a house.   People continued to ask me to do portraits throughout college as I pursued a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communication Design/Illustration

at the University of Dayton.   After graduating, I worked as a picture framer for a number of years, and continued to build my portrait client base.   I now work as a professional portrait artist from my studio in Dayton, Ohio, where I specialize in colored and graphite pencil and create detailed, realistic drawings.   I also exhibit my work at a number of different art fairs and festivals/shows in Ohio.   My artwork can be purchased as prints or custom commissioned portraits.
