Ella – Downtown

Hey! I’m Ella, a songwriter and illustrator living in Manhattan. I grew up in Maryland with two portuguese water dogs (yes, they have webbed feet!), and have been pet-sitting and walking for friends and family ever since. I adore working with dogs, and believe in building consistent, empathetic relationships with each dog I care for, emphasizing communication and patience. Fun fact – my twin sister is also a dog-walker, so I guess it runs in the family!

When I’m not dog-walking, I’m plein air painting, making comics, and going to zine fests and open mics around the city. I’m currently working on a graphic novel & releasing a record. While I do not have any pets of my own, I do have a collection of over 50 houseplants that I care for. I’m looking forward to meeting your furry companions!
