Welcome

Gatsby

Using your favorite photos, I will hand-paint a pet portrait that will capture your pet’s favorite pose, facial expression, and personality. This can be a painting of your own animal best friend, or it can be a unique gift for a friend or a loved one.  A pet painting can also be a beautiful memorial to a dog, a cat, a horse, or any other beloved pet no longer with us; this will provide you with a true-to-life reminder of your pet’s unique personality. I will create an affordable, lifelike painting that will immortalize your pet, providing you with a wonderful memory that will last a lifetime.

Your pet’s physical appearance is just one of the characteristics that you love so much.  It is just as important to capture your pet’s spirit. I believe their essence can best be seen in their faces. Our pets may not be able to speak but the expressions on their faces speak volumes.

In order to capture your pet’s unique personality, I will need some clear photographs (the more detail the better) to help me create a good close-up of his/her face.  I’ll be painting the portrait exactly as it is in one of the photos you provide. By starting with the eyes, I am able to develop a connection with the pet.  For this reason, I only work on one portrait at a time.  Your involvement is important to me, as no one knows your pet as well as you do.

Throughout this process, I will send you digital photos and will ask for your input.  When we are both satisfied with the results, I will send your beautiful painting to you.  Once I have  completed your painting, we will have an image of your pet which can be used for numerous creative gift ideas or for your own personal enjoyment, such as notecards, calendars, postage stamps; the possibilities are limitless.
