Custom Pet Portraits

Sometimes, a special animal enters our hearts, and we want to hold them there forever.  And that's what I do. Your pet, captured on canvas, forever.  Using your photographs, or photos I take for you, I will capture your pet's beautiful eyes, their loving spirit, and create a portrait you will be proud of.  

You can choose from a variety of mediums: oil, acrylic, pastel, or pencil, on canvas or high quality paper. Plus, you can help other animals in need:  10% of pet portrait commissions is donated to the animal shelter/rescue of your choice.  It's a win/win situation for you and animals in need!   Contact me today and let's talk about creating a beautiful portrait of your pet that will last a lifetime!

Not sure what to give for a special occasion?  Need something for the person who has everything?  A Pet Portrait gift certificate is a wonderful way to celebrate the life of a beloved furry friend.  I'd love to work with you to create the perfect gift package to suit your budget.  

No pet?   I also have standard portrait gift certificates available. Prices are dependent on size and the number of subjects.    Contact me and let's see what we can do!
