Beth Whitaker is an honors graduate of Pratt Institute, New York, with a BFA in Illustration and Graphic Design. Over the years, her work in graphics and publications design elevated her to the position of Art Director for American Heritage Magazine. Always an artist, the love for animals and artistic training has lead Beth to become one of the most proficient pet portraitists in New York.

 "I was raised on a farm, and my family had a series of rescue dogs and a steady stream of cats and other animals to enjoy the country," Beth recalls. "The dogs are what I remember most fondly. I spent hours with every one of them, looking and learning about their physicality and essence, and feeling a bond of love from each like no other. Perhaps this is why I love to paint animals and why I'm sucessful at it; I love, understand and respect all of them."
