The Portage Co. Sheriff’s Office is sporting some new art of its K9 dogs, thanks to a woman from Plover.

Stephanie Schlegel works by day in the military science building on the UW-Stevens Point campus. But in her spare time, the trained graphic artist flexes her artistic muscles arm through Nefelibata Creative, her business that offers hand-painted portraits of family pets.

Schlegel stopped by the Portage Co. Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 8 to present Sheriff Mike Lukas and Deputy Jeff Sadlemyer with portraits of the department’s two K9 dogs, Lexa and Indy, and retired dog Lady.

Previously, Schlegel donated hand-painted portraits of K9 dogs at police departments in Stevens Point and Plover.
