My name is Kate Freitas 

I am a commission-based watercolor artist located in Central California specializing in animal portraiture.  Each portrait is created with quality paints and paper using photographs provided to me for reference.  

I greatly enjoy painting each individual portrait and strive to capture the unique qualities of each pet by interpreting the photos and stories of my clients.  My clients' joy is what drives me.  Whether you are looking for a heartwarming decoration, memorial or special gift, it would be my pleasure to create a one-of-a-kind piece just for you.

I believe all animals deserve care and love and that is why I donate a portion of all proceeds to local animal shelters and rescues for those who need a chance and sometimes a miracle.  Help be that chance and strive for that miracle.
"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."  - Anatole France"I call my horses 'divine mirrors' - they reflect back the emotions you put in.  If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that."  - Allan Hamilton
