Dixie Frank has been an art and nature lover all her life. She lives in the rural countryside in Ohio with her partner Mr. Tom, her beagle "Eula", black lab "Cleo", two black cats "Sid and "P*#% Ant" and their feathered friend "Ringo".
She has specialized in painting portraits of her clients beloved pets for many years. Having always wanted to illustrate a children's book, she finally found the subject of her first story to both write and illustrate.
Above are paintings she has done of her "family". To see more of her work you can link to her Pet Portrait website http://www.designsbydixie.net
