What better way to honor your furry, feathered, or scaled friends than to have them immortalized as a customized pet portrait! I can create a colorful and fully customized pet portrait just for you. With vibrant rainbow colors and bold pencils strokes, your pet’s personality will shine through! My style blends realistic anatomy and proportions with bold color to create one-of-a-kind artwork of your beloved pet.
I use pastel pencils on pastelmat, which is a board that is treated with a special surface to hold many layers of pastel. I fix the artwork with a spray fixative, and it is shipped securely with insurance and tracking. I also include an artwork care sheet and a certificate of authenticity with every portrait. For larger paintings, I can also use acrylic paint on canvas, if you prefer.
Whether your friend is furry, feathered or scaled, I can paint them all! Although most of my portraits so far are cats and dogs, I am capable and willing to paint any animal species and breed. Cats, dogs, horses, birds, reptiles, pocket pets, and anything else.
The background of the pet portrait is typically done as a colorful abstract gradient to highlight the subject. If you prefer a more detailed background or something specific, I am able to do that as well.
Pricing for each commissioned piece is highly individualized, and I have to take each piece in a case-by-case basis, rather than giving a generic price for size or subject. If you want to get an idea about how much something will cost, please contact me via my online form.
