About ME | The Creative Pioneer
Hi there, I'm Bev, a Brit now living in Connecticut, USA.
At The Creative Pioneer I believe Art should be Fun, expressive, and accessible to all.
What started out as a way to memorialize our pet Dog Bailey, blossomed into a full-time Portrait business.
I was a keen pencil artist as a teenager but life happened and it wasn’t until 20 years later did I rekindle my love for making art. When we lost our pup to Cancer at a young age I wanted to create a piece we could cherish for many years to come, something that would capture his personality, character and of course his beauty, all in one (proud Dog Mom here!).
So I taught myself Photoshop, and started to play around with various digital art brushes, I was amazed at the technology options available, combined with my artistic style, I was having so much fun!
I started in business 11 years ago, working in-person events only, I now have my ETSY store alongside my website, and still attend the odd event to meet local clientele within my community.
The portrait process is pretty straightforward, I require a high-resolution photo to work from, I always send proofs to you for checking, and once you are happy with your custom portrait I print your portrait on Fine Art Watercolor paper, using Canon Archival inks that resist fading. All custom work comes with complimentary shipping anywhere in the USA, so these can make amazing gifts to send to friends and family across the Country to show how much you care.
Whether you are a Realtor looking to WOW your clients with the perfect Closing Gift, or a Pet Lover searching for a thoughtful memorial gift, my portraits will be sure to please.
I also give back ❤️🐶 The Creative Pioneer / and my ETSY store 4PawsPioneer 🐱❤️ regularly donates to animal charities in our community and beyond, your purchase helps to make a difference 💚
Thanks for reading my story
