Custom Colorful Pet Portraits from your Photo
Updated October 30, 2019
Immortalize your best friend with a custom colorful pet portrait. My specialty is creating a colorful and fully customized portrait of your pet. With vibrant rainbow colors and bold brush 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. Although my portfolio has mostly dogs and cats, I am capable of painting any animal.
The last day I will accept Christmas portrait commissions is November 22!
Reference Photos for Pet Portraits
For pet portraits, please pick out one photo that you like the best, and this will be used as the main reference. Also please have at least 3-4 other photos of your pet that I can use as secondary references. Please make sure the photos are detailed, are in focus, and not too dark or too light. Digital photos can be sent to my email address.
I am willing to work with whatever photos you have of your pet. As long as it is not too blurry or dark, I am able to transform them into a beloved painted memorial of your pet. Please keep in mind, however, that the better the picture quality, the better details the portrait will have. The more photos that you have of your pet that I can use as a reference, the better.
For tips and tricks on taking better pictures of your pets, please read my Blog Article on photographing your pet.
My pet portraits are hand-painted with acrylic paints on stretched canvas. These paintings can be done in any size, and are sealed with a varnish to protect the painting. They are shipped ready-to-hang, and do not need to be framed. Please see the chart below for general price quotes for each size painting.
Please note that these are hand painted originals. I work 100% with traditional media, and do not use any digital or printed material in my artwork. You, as the customer, will receive the original painting, not a print.
I will also work with pastels, colored pencils, or graphite pencils/charcoal if you prefer. Please email me for a special price quote if you want these materials used instead.
My preferred method of payment is PayPal. I require at least a 50% deposit for all commissions paid using PayPal before I start, and the other 50% paid upon completion. You can send money with PayPal even if you do not have an account. I do not accept personal checks at this time.
You can also order a pet portrait through my Etsy store. This allows you to pay with a credit card or debit card of your choice, and is guaranteed. For purchases made through Etsy, 100% of the amount is paid in full up front.
