Hi! My name is Ellie and I'm a freelance digital illustrator and painter. After college, I realized what I really wanted to do was travel, meet new people, experience different spaces, and create art that reflects my experiences. I've had animal friends around my whole life, from snakes to lizards, rabbits, dogs, cats, donkeys, goats, horses, chickens, you get the idea! I was working at an aquarium prior to the pandemic, where I was both an animal expert, exhibits specialist, and a supervisor, so I know a lot about animals! I also held a position at that job as a "sanitization expert" where I was in charge of team that kept things running and cleanly, and I honestly loved it!
In my free time, I can be found with my nose buried in a book or in my art. I've been an artist my whole life and I finally decided to sell my art professionally several months ago. I make stickers, prints, and merchandise out of my work as well as selling original paintings. I prefer digital painting but I also work in oils and acrylics. During my time with your home, when I'm not actively caring for your pets I will likely be drawing digitally or reading (If your pets are snugglers that's a bonus)!
I have housesit mostly through word of mouth and my social media up to this point but I'm looking to expand onto different platforms so don't let my new profile deceive you! Ask me about my previous sits and I'm happy to share more of my past experiences with you!
If you have any questions about me, just ask! I'm an open book and I'm happy to get to know you as well!
I'm excited to meet you and your animals and I'm dedicated to making you feel safe and comfortable knowing that your home and your furry (or scaly) friends are in great care and receiving lots of love and attention!
The services I provide are as follows:
General upkeep, deep cleaning, organizing, collecting daily mail, taking out and bringing in trash, watering plants, minor weeding (please note: I will use the products you have in your home for cleaning)
General care (cats, dogs, small reptiles, rabbits, rodents, fish, horses, chickens, etc.) including walks, meals, medication, etc., play, and other exercise as needed, minor grooming (brushing, baths, and claw trims)
If there are other services you require, let me know! I'm happy to discuss exactly what you need and want from me while I take care of your home.
COVID-19 note: I am a very responsible and clean person. I will be wearing a mask during our face-to-face interactions and will insure your home is contamination-free. I am fully vaccinated as of 4/14
