Ted Smith • Artist Statement

I had always painted all kinds of subjects: landscapes, still lifes and abstracts. I still do. I find dogs and cats to be the most engaging, especially if I can give expression to the eyes. Our animals make us better humans—they make a bad day better and a good day wonderful; they lower our blood pressure and make us more compassionate and caring. Some of my clients simply want animal art and collectibles for around the house while others are looking for a painting of a certain breed or type that reminds them of a beloved pet. I hope you’ll enjoy my art. I’m based in Los Angeles. Feel free to contact me at TedSmithArtist@icloud.com for commissions and special requests.
