Our artist, Alicia Gribbin, graduated Munson Williams Proctor Institute in Utica, NY and then transferred down to Sarasota, FL to finish up her schooling at Ringling School of Art and Design. After graduating both schools she obtained an AA in Fine Arts from Munson and a BA in Illustration from Ringling.
Alicia realized her passion for working with scratchboard and combined it with her love for animals. She has always loved animals, and grew up with family dogs. Alicia also fell in love with greyhounds the moment she laid eyes on them at the Sarasota Kennel Club when she worked there. Her and her husband have even owned two of these wonderful dogs.
Alicia specializes not only in the commissioned scratchboard portraits, but also does Ductanimals (Duct Tape portraits) and Soul Windows (oil/colored pencil portraits). Ready made ones can be purchased, or you can commission your own pet in one of these three mediums.
Our goal is to create a beautiful and lasting memory of your favorite furry friend (or scaly or feathery :) ). We will do a commission of any animal from a photograph. Our joy is making you a piece which captures your family member that you can treasure for many years to come.
