My name is Robin Wiesneth and I'm an artist and Children's book author. I paint quirky yet realistic scenes of whimsy and charm and bring my art into imaginative and fun Children's books. More than anything, I love to create art and books that make people smile. I work primarily with acrylics on canvas but sometimes explore mixed media compositions and paint on a variety of surfaces.
I do crazy and original pet portraits from photos so if you have an extremely adorable pet, email me with photos and a good story and I'll get back with you. You can view my portrait commission rates here.
Thanks for stopping by and if one of my pieces makes you smile or laugh then I've done all I set out to do...
