Your dog's name in pictures?


I was introduced to the fun and unique art of Mindy Martinsen of City Art Photography by niece and Web 2.0 mentor, Christie. Using original photographs, Mindy combines some very cool images into words. Clients can create a wonderfully personal image for their home or dog house by using first and last names, hometowns or special places.

Mindy created a DOGBEACH image for our home. We hung the finished piece by our front door reminding us to be happy and of course, take the dogs for a swim. Mindy worked hard to give us the image we wanted. We love it!
Thanks to Mindy and City Art Photography, we have a Sweet Dog GIVEAWAY!


One lucky winner will receive this Mindy Martinsen piece.
