Custom art at 4 Paws!
Here at 4 Paws Resort and Spa we are proud to feature 2 local artists who specialize in Pet and Animal art (as well as other subjects)...!

Marcelle Blaker grew up in Southern California, for most of her life. Her family moved around a lot throughout her childhood. At an early age she was a self-taught artist, taking solace in creating to express herself. Her parents recognized her natural ability and sought private training for her over the following two years.

At the age of 8, she was winning blue ribbons in her local art show. Striving to perfect her craft, she continued to study through her high school art classes and other creative outlets, while taking small art jobs through her school. She recently finished a two-year art instruction training from LAAFA Academy of Art in Van Nuys, CA. In the past she has been involved with the SFVAC an art club in Los Angeles, and with various local art shows.

Her favorite medium is oil painting, but also enjoys acrylics, pointillism, watercolor and sketching in dark pencil. Her inspiration often comes from nature, Mexican art, Asian-inspired art ,'40's and 50's vintage pin-up era and pop-surrealism. While fine art is her first love, she is always creating in some way - jewelry designing, fashion and other handmade artistic projects.

Samantha is a long time dog lover and rescuer from the San Fernando Valley.  In her Adopt a Painting Collection, she combines her love of dogs with her passion for painting.  Samantha has painted numerous rescue dogs she has helped to save over the years. 

Their personalities are now captured in a whimsical rendering on canvas, and you can own an original painting of one of these lovable pups! She also welcomes you to send her pictures for a customized painting of your very own pet. 

Samantha has had dogs her whole life and has been working with Life4Paws for six years, so she understands the bond between a person and their four-legged best friend.  In addition to painting dogs, Samantha also offers a variety of other still life paintings in her Pretty In Paint Collection.
