"I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, then all of the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world." ~ Samuel Johnson
Ara Witmer, Artist
While growing up in San Diego, California, I learned to love both animals and art. In 1989, I graduated from San Diego State University with a B.A. in Art, with an emphasis in Applied Design. My art is inspired by the natural world and all kinds of animals. I am currently a Free-Lance Graphic Designer and Painter, specializing in pet portraits.
