Paws4Art is a fine arts studio, owned by partners Donnasue Jacobi and Fred Roessler. They have been creating fine art photography together since 1985. Fred creates his fine arts photographs using traditional film and darkroom processes. He concentrates on visual images to capture the character of older forgotten places and times. Fred also specializes in pet portraits and uses a digital camera for pet portrait montages that Donnasue uses to design a personal photography book of your day with them and your beloved pets. He loves working with dogs to create a lasting imagery of beloved pets. His photography is offered for private and corporate collections. Donnasue is also a print maker and book artist/designer. She combines her love of design, hand-bound bookbinding, and photography to teach fun art classes for most age groups and skill levels. She also accepts commissions for a wide variety of custom books and greeting cards for personal and business needs.

I have always loved horses from the first time I started to ride at age 10. There was a time and space that I could spend an entire day with the horses on a ranch just outside the San Fernando Valley. A day filled with riding, learning about them, grooming, walking around the spring stream, and just hanging out with my horse of the day. I usually asked for an older white stallion, as he loved the carrots I brought him and was a real sweetheart.
