Portrait of a Pet
 
 
   
 

 

About the Artist
Elizabeth
Stuart Centanni has been creating portraits of pets, property and people for about 16 years, but she has nurtured a love of animals throughout her life. "I believe that animals are gifts to us from God. They show us that unconditional love that warms our hearts, and they remind us that there is good in the world," she said.

She became interested in creating pet portraits while drawing her father's eight chihuahuas as presents for him. Liz feels that a pet's personality ought to shine through the drawing, and she focuses on making sure her creations reflect that. Liz grew up in New Orleans and spent many a weekend prowling the museum and galleries with her mother, who is an incredible painter.

Liz has worked as a professional journalist and in administration and communications for non-profits. She is a graduate of Loyola University New Orleans.

Liz lives in Baton Rouge, La., with her husband, Tony. They are proud parents of Nico, a son and a 17-year-old calico cat who is kind enough to allow them to live in her house.
