  • Pastel Pet Portraits by Celeste Plowden


Celeste Plowden learned the art of pastel painting through private instruction, after having spent her career as a designer of printed fabrics in the New York market place. She is a graduate of the College of Design, Art and Architecture at the University of Cincinnati, with a major in the History of Art.

Nowadays Celeste gives more time to pastel painting, and pet portraits are her specialty.

Pets are Celeste’s passion. Over the years she has had many cats and dogs, has shown dogs, and in 1986 she studied at the New York School of dog grooming and with her certification, began a freelance grooming business in New York City.
