Who We Are
PurrPoseful Art Studio was founded in 2019.
PurrPoseful Art Studio is a home-based Humane Education art studio that was created to give children a purpose and a platform; to create one of a kind art, share their art, and inspire others to live a life that is cruelty free through their art.
Founder and Owner
Ms. Welty was born and raised in Upstate New York. She earned a Bachelor’s in Communications & Rhetoric, a Bachelor’s in Fine Art, and a Master’s in Art Education. Ms. Welty taught art for 18 years in Loudoun County, Virginia, before she left the classroom in September of 2021 to focus her efforts on growing PurrPoseful Art Studio.
Finnegan was rescued from Loudoun County Animal Services on November 23, 2014, at the age of 2 ½ years old. His name was Jeter, but he was clearly an Irish Finnegan. He weighs 18 pounds and is an orange tabby, main coon mix. Fin learned to play fetch during the pandemic and it is now part of his nightly routine.
Sophie was rescued from Loudoun County Animal Services on December 5, 2015 at the age of 4 months old. Her name was Becham, but that didn’t suit her at all. Sophie weighs 6 pounds and is a brown and black tabby. She is the sweetest sweet pea and loves waking her Mom up every morning with wet “kisses.”
