Welcome! Thanks for visiting my site. I am an animal lover and really appreciate how unique they all are. I create portraits painted in acrylic on canvas or panel. Working from photographs, I enjoy helping clients obtain a true likeness of their beloved pets. A portrait can be a wonderful way to honor a pet whether they are living or deceased. If they have already passed it can help to keep their memory alive. Curious about a commission? Please get in touch!
Allow 3-4 weeks.
Example of what would not work well for a portrait. We can't see details on front of cats since the light comes from above and behind.
Great photo taken outdoors on a sunny day. The whole body is visible which allows for more options such as a portrait head or a whole body.
I can work with you to help select best options from your photos. Good images include great lighting. Photos taken outdoors or inside by a window work best. It's also helpful to see the pet on their level.
Once I have your photos we can work together to choose the composition and size of painting.
