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.

Original Photographic Prints

All of the silver gelatin prints (black and white photographs) were entirely hand printed by the artist. They are printed on fiber-based paper, which is archivally processed, and mounted and over matted with 100% ragboard. The matting is included in the price of each print.

The hand colored prints are as above, except after processing they were individually hand-painted with oil paints. The hand colored prints are made in editions of not more than 25 prints, some in smaller editions, and due to their handmade nature there has always been some slight variation in the painting from one to the next within the edition.

The black and white photographs and the hand colored photographs are generally available in either (paper size) 10x10,” 11" x 14," or occasionally by special order 16" x 20.
