My name is Susan Long and I live in Orlando, Florida with my husband Mike, and our dogs Skye and Sparky, and Shadow.
After graduating from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, I worked in ad agencies and in my own graphic design company in Fort Lauderdale. As an advertising artist, I designed ads, brochures and logos for my clients but continued to draw and paint whenever possible.
When we relocated to Orlando in 2001, I began pursuing painting full time. I work in all mediums but do most of my pet portrait work in pastel as it is the perfect medium for portraying animals.
One of the most rewarding things about painting animal portraits is meeting people who share a special bond with their pets. I enjoy bringing them to life through my art and capturing the devotion and unconditional love reflected in the eyes of these animal friends.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my paintings. If you are interested in a portrait, an existing painting, or would like additional information, please contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
