Terry Albert artist, writer, pet sitter

Terry Albert and AngusIntroducing Terry Albert

I love animals and they are an essential part of my life. I have hands-on experience with hundreds of dogs and cats – as a dog trainer, a foster home for numerous breeds, pet sitter and now boarding dogs in my home. It is this experience I put into my art, my writing, and everything I do. Contact me.

golden retriever pet portraitArt: Pet Portraits

Creating custom pet portraits has been my passion for over 20 years. I have a degree in art, and worked as a commercial artist for many years. My work has won awards from the Dog Writers Association of America and the Art Show at the Dog Show. I've exhibited at the AKC Museum of the Dog, and painted for breed clubs and specialty shows.

Long before I painted pets, my work featured a variety of subjects: florals, landscapes, places and things that hold precious memories for my clients. Today I enjoy exploring new outlets for my creativity. See some of my paintings.

Terry and TankA video dedicated to everyone who rescues and adopts homeless animals.

A poem I wrote, I Never Was a Mother, expresses my love for animals and why I, and so many others like me, rescue homeless pets. It won a Maxwell Award from the Dog Writers Association of America in the poetry category. This video was created by my friend Roberta Cantow of Original Digital.
