Our pets are extensions of our family, sometimes even closer to us than human family members! Celebrate the love you have for your pet by having a custom portrait painted to hang on your walls forever. If you’ve lost a pet, having a custom portrait painted will memorialize them for all time. I will provide you a beautiful representation of your beloved pet that you will always cherish.
I will paint a custom portrait of your pet using ink and watercolours. Your portrait will be painted on premium quality watercolour paper. Portraits are painted from a photo provided by you of your pet. Please send 2-5 of your favourite high resolutions photos.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
No, framing risks breaking during transit. Your portrait will come in a protective plastic sleeve and sturdy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. This way you can put your personal touch to your painting with your own framing style. Some people choose floating frames, others dark walnut and others white. There are so many options, and it is fun to discover!
I accept half of the full payment upon confirmation of your desire to have a portrait painted. The other half of payment is due upon completion. Your portrait will be shipped when full payment plus shipping is received.
Shipping cost vary depending on the size of your portrait and your location in the world. Shipping to remote areas like acreages and farms costs a bit more than larger city delivery. Within North America most portraits are shipped within the $12-$20 range. Outside of North America please inquire if you are concerned about the costs and I can give you an estimate.
Please allow 2-3 weeks for your portrait to be completed. Sometimes it is faster than this but I find this time frame works the best.
I have done many secret commissions and they are one of my favourite types to do! You will need to provide me with 2-5 high resolution images of your friends pet. If you can’t get that many good photo’s don’t worry! I have done some secret portraits with as little as one fuzzy picture. Just know that it is more difficult for me to paint a detailed portrait if the photo provided is fuzzy and/or the subject is far away.
Canada Post also REQUIRES a mailing address, email address and phone number before shipment.
I notice you post on Social Media a lot, how can I keep my friend from seeing that you're working on her pet portrait?
If you are giving a portrait as a gift, please make sure to specify that you need the progress kept secret until your friend receives her gift. I will keep all progress pictures/videos etc. from social media until your friend has received her portrait. At that point I will begin sharing in the excitement of your gift to her by sharing the progress and completion of her pets portrait! BTW, you’re an awesome friend!
All of my commissioned paintings come standard with a white background, keeping your pet the centre of attention. My goal is for you to be completely in love with your commissioned portrait! Background colour can be added for an additional $25 for 8″x10″ & 9″x12″ and $35 for 11″x14″. If you would like a more detailed specific background please connect with me and it can be arranged! Pricing will depend on the level of detail required and the size of your painting.
I would like my two pets on one portrait but one of my pets has passed away. Can you paint them together if I don't have a picture of them together?
Firstly, I am so very sorry for your loss. I can absolutely paint the two of them together even if they are not in a photo together. I have done several paintings just like this! It is an honour to bring your two pets together onto one painting. I will just need 2-5 high resolution photos of each of your pets separately and I will chose the best ones to combine for their portrait. Please note two pets must be painted on an a11″x14″ or larger paper.
