The owner and artist, Frank DiGregorio grew up in southern New Jersey and always knew that being a professional artist was his future. After attending art school in Florida and spending years as a portrait and caricature artist, he was recruited by Walt Disney Feature Animation.

Since Disney he has animated for Nickelodeon Television and taught in the Film and Animation department at the School of Visual Arts in NYC.

His love of animals, the desire to oil paint and his knowledge of portraiture, have brought him to open Animal House Portraits. "I am very excited about the opportunity to work with and be a positive asset to the pet loving community" states Frank. "I have a pure and simple mission. My goal is to give pure happiness for every client that receives a professionally painted portrait. I attain this essential goal by capturing the subjects uniqueness, individual essence, personality and spirit. This is achieved through a timeless oil painted portrait that will be cherished for years to come. There is a genuine reaction that is absolutely priceless (and is most surprising) when seeing the portrait of a loved pet for the first time. This is a wonderful cherished gift for any pet owner and an excellent and respectful pet memorial. "
