Sarah Maddox Watercolor Art

Scrolling through Instagram one day, I came across artist Sarah Maddox and was immediately taken with her watercolor art featuring people and their pets.

She has an Etsy shop (SMaddoxArtShop) and I immediately contacted her to see if she was available to paint a piece for my friend Holley – What Would Holley Wear – as a thank you for all her work on her weekly fashion articles. Sarah was so easy to work with and from start to finish I received my art within two weeks.  Sarah studies Instagram photos and ones you send her.  She shows you the sketch first for approval and then goes from there with adding in the watercolor.  Even if you don’t have a pet, reach out to Sarah to have her do something for you.  Here’s a sample of her work from her Etsy site…

And here is the one she did for me of Holley and her bulldog, Junior…

If you look at Holley’s post from her trip to Aspen here, the outfit Holley was wearing is what Sarah used for inspiration.  Junior, on the other hand, was a little bit more of a challenge to draw because he’s a senior fellow and doesn’t sit up much…and since he’s vision and hearing impaired, a full frontal view was tricky.  I think Sarah did a great job capturing him for Holley as a keepsake.  I had Sarah add the Central Park sign since I know NY is one of Holley’s favorite places to visit.

Sarah’s art is very affordable, starting at $33 and would make the perfect gift.  You can follow her on Instagram @smaddoxart or check out her Etsy store.  I can’t wait to have her do one of me with these two yahoos…

Have a fabulous Friday!
