Pet Portrait

A custom pet portrait will hold a special place in the heart of the person who receives it. It is a loving present that will create memories to last forever. Commissioning a custom pet portrait is an amazing Birthday or Christmas gift idea. Something with the special meaning that is enclosed in a pet portrait would even work for smaller occasions such as a housewarming gift or Mother’s Day. If someone you care about has a much-loved pet in their lives, it may be worth the effort and expense to order a painting made from a photo of that pet.

I personally really love to paint dogs and cats.  I discovered this  love while working at the studio by running paint your pooch classes. It is why I decided to offer a pet painting option from myself as an artist.

Keep in mind: Pet portrait as a gift has been known to bring a happy tear to the eye of the recipient.

Oil Painting

By using oil paints I can achieve bold thick brushstrokes and using alla prima technique paint colours nicely blend one with another. Keep in mind that oil painting takes more time to dry. It is around 2-3 weeks before I can ship it. Therefore please do make sure to order your painting well in advance.

I use professional oil paints and stretched canvases with thin (1.5cm) or thick (4 cm) edges the size of your choice.

Acrylic paints allow me to work layers by layers. Acrylic painting dries very quickly. So, no drying time is needed. The portrait can be ready to ship in 2-5 days.
