I LOVE ANIMALS AND THEIR DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES.
After years of painting portraits of people, I now enjoy pet portraiture on commission.
I paint the portraits on the computer in the same way I used to paint on canvas or paper. Email me or use the email form on my contact page to discuss what you have in mind and together we can create a personalized portrait of your pet! I ask for a 50% deposit before starting your portrait and the balance when it is complete. Once you approve the final portrait, I print my portraits on the highest-quality archival fine art paper with high-quality archival inks, in two different sizes and send it to you. The largest sized paper is 13" x 19". I am also happy to give you, at no extra charge, a digital file in a format of your choice. You can use this if you wish to have cards printed.
The important part is taking a wonderful photograph that captures the pet. I am happy to help clients through this process. In the case of my own dog, Henry with the bow tie, I had to use kibble. While I was taking the pictures, a second person positioned behind me, moved a bag of kibble up and down until Henry was looking directly at me!
