About Me

Michelle Ward

That’s my crazy fun family over there having a tickle fight in the middle of a photo shoot. And, yes, those are TARDIS-covered sneakers I’m wearing.

I’m an autistic writer, science geek, story wonk turned artist. I make unique portraits of animals based on reference photographs. 

I wrote a children’s book and hired an artist to do the illustrations because, while I’ve worked with digital graphics for a long time, I don’t have a talent for drawing. I wasn’t satisfied with the process, though, because I wanted to do the art myself. I began to explore ways to illustrate digitally and found ways of turning photographs into vibrant, colorful portraits. I started with photos of friends’ pets and fell in love with the results. I branched out into custom portraits for people I don’t know as well as portraits of wild and domestic animals from stock photos I licensed. I’ve also begun to do more portraits from my own photography.   

Two of my great loves are animals and color, so finding a way to combine them makes my heart sing. Many of the people I’ve made portraits for tell me I’ve captured their pet’s personality in a way the original photo did not. I find that incredibly satisfying.   

I’m enrolled in a graphic design program that is my primary focus, so I’m not currently taking orders for custom portraits. There is more art to come, though – portraits as well as illustrations!
