ABOUT THE ARTIST
Welcome to Pet Portraits in Oils. It would be my pleasure to paint a portrait of your beloved pet.
I'm located in the San Francisco Bay Area ~ easily contacted by email: fran@FrancesChubaArt.com
Please contact me with any questions. Thank you for viewing my website. I look forward to hearing from you.
My art career began with a lie. As a young, left-handed, Italian-American, I loved to draw. Art meant everything to me. The only thing I ever wanted to do was become an artist.
The lie? When I was a child my mother told me that since I was Italian, and since she was born in Italy, and since her family name was Leonardo, that I was a direct descendant of another great Italian left-handed Leonardo artist ...Leonardo da Vinci ~ ~ ~ assolutamente!
(These sorts of "white lies" go a long way giving kids confidence in their dreams!)
I may not be related to Leonardo da Vinci but I do love creating art, and I hope you will enjoy viewing these portraits. You won't find a Mona Lisa ~ but, perhaps, one of her "direct descendants!"
