Meet the artist


Hello! 

I am Michelle Pignone. I am a Registered Nurse by vocation. My career has graced me with the opportunity of caring for differently-abled children who benefit greatly from a service dog. I have witnessed first hand the improvement of quality of life that a service dog can provide to its person, and it brings me all the feels, every time. 

ArtBeat of Earth is my passion project, which combines my love of art with caring for humanity. At this time, I am donating $50 from each Zen Pet Portrait purchase to 4 Paws for Ability, a nonprofit organization that provides service dogs to children worldwide.

When I’m not immersed in making art, you can find me caring for my own two children and two dogs, hiking, skiing, running, sleeping somewhere in between, and eating all the foods.
