Fine Art Animal Portraits

Jerilyn Weber photoJerilyn Weber's love of animals and her understanding of the deep connection we have with them, have made her one of the most gifted animal portrait artists working today.

"I understand the importance an animal has in its owner's life and I am dedicated to making a painting of that animal the best it can be.  A portrait is not only a visual representation of our beloved companions, but also reflects the enduring love we have for them."
Working in pastels, Weber is able to capture not only the outward appearance of an animal, but also its distinct personality.  Her work is characterized by a rich palette and attention to detail.
Weber exhibits regularly and has received numerous awards for her work.  She has been a multiple first place winner in the New York Dog Fanciers art competitions and has been featured in such national publications as "Equine Vision Magazine", "Polo Players' Edition" and "Canine Images" magazine.  Her work may be found in private collections throughout the US, Canada and Europe.  She is a founding member of the New Jersey Equine Artists' Association.
