Christina Maniet’s pencil smudged pet portraits portray a “play on contradictions” by capturing the look of stark realism while incorporating a whimsical flair. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania, she studied at the University of the Arts and Arcadia University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Scientific Illustration. She currently resides in California where she and her team are busy eating, sleeping, and creating art. This team consisting of animal rescues are the direct influence into creating these one-of-a-kind custom pet portraits and the promoting of rescue awareness. The business was started when she had been inspired to draw a portrait of Jake. That portrait invoked the interests of others and C.M.Maniet’s Pencil Smudged Pet Portraits was born.
