About the Artist...
Pete Burns is a self-taught artist focusing on pet portraits.
In March of 2015, Pete was working at an animal shelter and was bit by an aggressive dog that had been abused by its previous owners. Pete's left hand was crushed and he lost part of his index-finger. In an attempt to save the dog, Pete pleaded with the shelter to adopt him. But unfortunately, the dog was euthanized.
Since that day, Pete has made it his mission to help abused animals of any kind. In October of 2015, Pete began drawing pets for friends and family for donations, and in early 2016 PetPortraitsByPete.com was born. Now anyone in the world can order a portrait from Pete while saving lives.
Pete has partnered with the ASPCA, Humane Society and local shelters. A portion of every sale made will help fight animal abuse.
