Willa Captures the True Essence

Willa Zelinski is an extremely talented 16-year-old artist with the ability to capture the true essence of her subject. Her work speaks for itself. Below are drawings of Harley, (our friend’s little girl) Nutmeg, and our dear Miss Pickles.

Through April 30th, Willa will donate 50% of her commissions to “Harley’s Dream” to help us spread awareness about puppy mills. If you are interested, please contact Willa at: luludustycotton@icloud.com
