Poodles

For 24 years, I have been breeding quality standard poodles at my small village farm in Connecticut, usually 1-2 litters per year, between my overseas travel for engineering work.  Breeding combines my love of the beauty and movement of the standard poodle, with my interest in the science of genetics and health.

I paint what I know and what I love, so painting poodles is a way for me to connect to the poodle being painted. I’ve spent so many years breeding, training, grooming and handling them, knowing every expression, muscle and bone, helps to infuse my poodle painting with their essence.

I’d welcome creating a painting with your beautiful poodle in it, as a scene or a portrait. I work with very high grade professional watercolors and heavy cotton paper to create a lasting image. Please feel free to contact me about a commissioned painting at sandra@sandracointreau.com

Most were commission, but some of the paintings below are Available and you may message me about pricing at sandra@sandracointreau.com
