Custom Pet Portrait In Time For The Holidays

Your Pet In Oil

These are just a few of the pets I have painted over the years. It is one of my favorite things to do. I have been an animal lover my whole life and was fourteen before I was able to talk my Mom into getting me my first dog. I have had several since then as well as a cat, hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, fish, etc. So when I paint your pet, I look to find their spirit in the photos you send and as the painting develops, I find that it is like having them in my studio and it is such a delight. I do hold my breath a little until I hear back from you that you are delighted and that my efforts to capture your sweet pet have been successful. I am so grateful to all my collectors who have entrusted me to paint their pet or one of a loved one!

The process begins when you send me your favorite photos. Photos taken outside are best. It is good to send several and decide if you just want a portrait of the face or more of a full body pose. We decide on a size and then you send half as a deposit. I get started and when I am finished, I send you a photo of the painting. When you are thrilled with the results and it is dry enough to ship, you send the balance. The turnaround is anywhere from a month to six weeks depending on how many commissions I am working on. I named this post about being in time for the holidays so we can have plenty of time to have things ready! Contact me at to get started on immortalize  your furry friend in oil!
