How it Works


Consider the size of the portrait. Will it be a small artwork that you can display on a shelf, or a larger piece that will hang on your wall?

Most common size ordered are:

Small: 8"x10"

Medium: 12”x16" (MOST ORDERED)

Large: 18"x24"

🐾 STEP 2: Choose Medium

"I specialize in creating lifelike pet portraits using a unique blend of digital and traditional oil painting techniques. Each portrait begins as a digital rendering, allowing for precise detailing and composition. However, when clients opt for the oil painting option, I take the extra step to meticulously recreate the entire image on canvas with rich, luminous colors and textured brushwork. This fusion of digital precision and traditional craftsmanship ensures that your pet's portrait captures not only their likeness but also the vibrant essence of oil paint."


A great pet portrait begins with a great photo. It should be in focus, good quality, and taken in the daylight. It is also best if the shot is taken at eye level with the pet, and not at an angle from above. 

Not sure which image to choose? Need help?

That’s okay! Feel free to upload any photo you have in mind, and if it is not suitable for a portrait, I will reach out to you and help you pick the right one.
